One Punch Wonder

One Punch Wonder – October 2019

Written and directed by Amanda Crewes

“Educate and bring up boys to be men of respect, men that protect and look after not only their families but others. Men that don’t tolerate acts of violence against women and the vulnerable in our communities. Men that will never consider or accept acts of extreme cowardice like this as acceptable.”

How much damage does one punch really do?

One Punch Wonder pulls up the page and puts the culture of toxic masculinity under a microscope, looking into the coward’s punch from all angles it asks us:

How are we raising our boys?

“To the surprise of many audience members, One Punch Wonder is, dare I say … entertaining.  Incredibly physical, this piece of theatre goes beyond the traditional forms of verbatim, moving from gentle, vulnerable, intimate moments to moments of high intensity, adrenaline filled acrobatics. The show is at once, athletic and authentic.”
