Keeping you on the edge of your seat, BRUCE will sweep you away on an epic adventure of love and revenge.

From the creator of the international smash hit The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer comes a new low-fi puppetry spectacular. Get ready to blast off for an epic adventure that bends time and melts your heart. After Tim Watts’ last two Helpmann Award nominated shows (The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer and It’s Dark Outside) performed to sold out crowds and rave reviews all over the world, Watts has teamed up with Nickelodeons’ Wyatt Nixon-Lloyd for the debut of BRUCE.

Keeping you on the edge of your seat, BRUCE will sweep you away on an epic adventure of love and revenge. He may be just a floating block of yellow foam, but BRUCE is out to prove he’s got a heart of pure gold. These exceptionally skilled puppeteers bring BRUCE to life as we witness the incredible comedic story of his life as a self-proclaimed hero-cop turned novelist-astronaut.

BRUCE is a loveable screw-up; he’s got one last shot at redemption but, with a lifetime of regrets hunting him down, he’s running out of space-time. Created and performed by Wyatt Nixon-Lloyd and Tim Watts, this sidesplitting story is unapologetic in its minimal approach. BRUCE is a non-stop rollercoaster of action, adventure and nostalgia.

“This see-it-to-believe-it production has mastered the art of turning the ordinary into the truly extraordinary, and it is an absolute
treat to watch.” – BroadwayBaby

“Bruce is a high-octane, lo-fi adventure with genuine edge-of-the-seat thrills…” – The Guardian, UK
