Spike Milligan’s PUCKOON is a Goonish blend of theatrical anarchy, musical wit, and impossible plot. Ireland 1922, and the Ulster Boundary Commission has drawn the new border straight through the small town of Puckoon.

Based on Spike Milligan’s comic masterpiece, this hilarious and irreverent story takes the mick, celebrates the absurd, and paints a picture of a simple life that borders on the ridiculous.
