Shadow puppetry has never been this much fun. Sticks Stones Broken Bones is a weird and wonderful shadow puppet adventure perfect for kids and adults, all the way from Montreal.

Created and performed by Jeff Achtem who, as his alter ego Mr Bunk, recycles household junk to create flying chickens, brain transplants, racing horses and ninjas at breakneck speed.

The laughs began within seconds of the show starting and didn’t stop until the end of this crazy puppet show - The Independent Weekly, Adelaide

Mr Bunk, puppeteer extraordinaire creates hilarious shadow puppet melodramas out of bits and bobs you’ll find in any household. Transforming it into surreal shadow puppets in hilarious live cartoons. Your imagination will race to catch up with Achtem’s creations as the next shadow springs to life.

Like a Pixar film, people of all ages are sure to get something out of this show and escape for one hour to a world of simple silliness and pure joy – Adelaide Advertiser

With a plethora of awards and accolades this hilarious and surreal show has travelled the globe and comes to us direct from Adelaide Fringe in 2014.

Winner, Best Newcomer Edinburgh Fringe 2010, ***** Fest Magazine Edinburgh, Best Show - Perth Fringe 2012, Spirit of the Fringe- Edinburgh Fringe 2010, Total Theatre Award shortlist - Edinburgh Fringe 2010, Best Puppet Show - Adelaide Fringe 2011, Sell out show- Edinburgh Fringe 2010.


One of the most spellbinding moments of puppet theatre I have ever encountered - The Stage, UK

A feast for the imagination, Jeff Achtem’s Mr Bunk will inspire and excite adults and children aged 7+ with a show that takes the simplest of forms to the far corners of your imagination.


Filled with quirks and filled with beauty, it takes the simplest form of entertainment, and lifts it to the most unexpected of heights - Fringe Guru.com


Sticks Stones Broken Bones is a hilarious comedy, filled with absurd life like cartoon characters made in front of your eyes using sound effects and buckets loads of imagination. Come and play in the dark.
