You Don't know Dick
You Don't Know Dick is a puppet performance inspired by Punch & Judy.
“You don’t know Dick” puns on traditional Punch & Judy, from its use of organ-“grinder” music and enlistment of audience response to Dick’s boasts and demands of world/Judy in satisfying his needs. Harnessing recognizable slapstick cues and "Punch lines:" “the more you do the more you do” and “that’s the way to do it” to explore content about the excesses of Wall Street, "You Don't Know Dick" outgrows the scale of the puppet theatre. In the end "Judys" scale the theatre back, and repurpose its parts, upending the patriarchal show.
