An Utterly Rubbish Adventure, James Hancox ·
The Parlour at The Pleasure Garden, 18 January 2022 ·
Junior review by Sascha Bott, age 10 ·
An Utterly Rubbish Adventure is a funny and entertaining little one man Fringe World show.
It is written and performed by the incredibly hilarious James Hancox, who takes us on an adventure into a rubbish bin full of puppets made from rubbish. In addition to these creations, the show features some quirky human characters, all played by Hancox himself.
An Utterly Rubbish Adventure taking advantage of a minimalist approach to set. Using cardboard boxes, empty bottles and cartons and other pieces of rubbish to tell its story.
During the show we meet two milk carton characters, Brenda the yoghurt pot, and a tissue paper bird who each help Hancox on his adventure to find The Bin King.
The puppet characters are fun and playful and even break into song at times. The show features a lot of audience interaction, including with the puppets, as well as some musical instruments made from trash which works well with such a small performance space and audience.
My personal favourite moment is when we meet the character known as “The Inventor”. Who throughout the show funnily attempts to convince everyone that all his rubbish is special treasure.
In my opinion, An Utterly Rubbish Adventure is perfect for a younger audience. Children up to the age of 8 years old especially would really enjoy the show due to its silliness, toilet humour and audience interaction.
