This article is an experiential reflection on the performative risks of embodying Mr Punch through costume for the piece Six O’clock Swill. This interactive solo is a modern day version of Mr Punch and delves into Society’s relationship with alcohol. Developed through London’s Experimental Cabaret scene, the costume allows Lorraine to change gender and incites her to be extremely mischievous and daring with the audience, with unpredictable outcomes. The use of mask in the piece has also led to several precarious health and safety moments.
