A PANTO, A PIE, & A PINT – PUNOCCHIO

Gaiety Theatre, Ayr

A PANTO, A PIE, & A PINT – PUNOCCHIO

For hundreds of years Pinocchio has been the liar. That’s just been his thing. He thought it made him cool. But now, in 2017 he’s realised that lying is nothing special, everybody’s at it- politicians, bankers, news reporters. The games up. So Pinocchio is moving on and has decided that comedy is his thing. He rebrands as Punocchio and somehow everyone still seems to think he’s the diddy.

Doors (& Pies!) Available 30 Mins Prior To Performances. Please note the performance may contain strong language and adult themes.

Tickets: £15 includes a panto and a pie and a pint!
