Combining the long standing tradition of Punch and Judy with the popular Brazilian Mamulengo puppet – get ready for a rib tickling magical show unlike no other! Our hero is the mischievous Beneditio, who is always getting in trouble. He now decides he must smash everything and anyone who gets in his way. You’ll laugh, shout and jump off your seats in glee as a colourful array of characters and Beneditio tangle with each other on the stage. Full of humour and satire, it’s a fresh and funny interpretation of the popular Northeast Brazilian  Mamulengo puppet.
