Mr. Puntila is a well-to-do land-owner who’s the soul of fraternity and good-will when drunk, but when he suffers one of his attacks of sobriety he’s a terror to everyone around him, especially his daughter Eva and his long-suffering chauffer Matti.

Brecht’s famous blend of social observation and high comedy mixed in with original live music and dancehall hijinx for good measure. It’s an intoxicating brew for the eyes, ears and head.
