Spike Milligan's Puckoon

Spike Milligan's Puckoon

Available on iTunes
Adapted from Spike Milligan's comic novel, this is a story in the vein of PASSPORT TO PIMLICO - where a small area of land is segregated from the rest of society. An Irish Free State is set up in the 1920's when the Sligo border is drawn, bisecting the Irish village of Puckoon right down the middle, through the middle of the pub and the churchyard. Milligan's digs at the stupid Brits, the military and religion are typically absurdist and feature a comedic IRA and catholic coffin-smuggling. PUCKOON boasts an all-star cast, and celebrated comedian Sean Hughes, in his first role, stars alongside Milligan's own daughter Jane.
