Giant puppets with a political message! Who’d ever have thought?
A taxpayer-funded theatre group has turned the September 11 attacks into a black comedy.
The Melbourne-based Snuff Puppets company – which receives up to $50,000 in public funding – will put on a charity performance of The Twin Towers Show on Friday.
Snuff Puppet artistic director Andy Freer said the show included black humour and violence …
Mr Freer said the purpose of The Twin Towers Show was to spark debate and understanding of the atrocity.
“We’ve made a 10-minute piece basically recreating the incident.
“We resolve it with a message about religious tolerance and harmony.”
The show was first performed about three weeks after the terrorist attacks in 2001.
The Snuff Puppet people claim:
All that is taboo in our society we tackle, with a vulgar, irreverent, gratuitously violent and comic sensibility.
Their (taxpayer-funded) boldering. Liars.

UPDATE. Reader MM alerts potential audience members:
My understanding is that this show at the Spanish Club, 59 Johnston St, Fitzroy (Melbourne, Australia) from 8 pm this Friday, does in fact involve scenes where Mohammed is depicted as a paedophile offering candy to young boys. There is also a running gag involving Mohammed and a goat.
