Andrew Buckland, acclaimed for his Ugly Noo Noo in 1991, returns with an even more unlikely tale, in which (bear with me here) two blood-cells journey through the human body to save the last tree on earth. Buckland and Lionel Newton contort their bodies and vocal cords, giving lunatic characterisation to bodily organs, inanely grinning TV presenters and inhuman cosmic judges. The physical vigour of the pair is astounding, and more than carries spectators past passages of pun-laden incomprehensibility. A fantastic voyage.
