      The Spitting Image team revealed that the script for their play has been updated to make the pranks “even tougher” on the Birmingham crowd. The update follows the opening week of performances at the REP in Birmingham.

      Idiots Assemble – Spitting Image Saves The World is a skit set in the Spitting Image universe that mocks those in the spotlight with caricatured puppets. Rishi Sunak, Tom Cruise and Stormzy are among some of the puppets featured in the play, which runs at the theater through Saturday, March 11.

      Co-writer Matt Forde has been part of the team to make the content as fresh as possible. After the first leg of performances took place in Birmingham last week, Matt spoke to BirminghamLive about what the response has been like so far.

      He said, “What’s really satisfying is hearing the audience’s reaction when certain puppets are revealed. Seeing those puppets live is mind-blowing.”

      “When people first see Prince Harry or Suella Braverman, they get really excited. And I didn’t really bargain for that.
