The “Pot de confiture” is the most performed play of Laurent Mourguet, Guignol’s creator. Collectif Zonzons refreshes this classic and modernizes the old art of handpuppet.

Sadly for Octave, his beautiful neighbor and fiancé, Mrs. Emily, recommended Guignol. And if she learns that her favorite servant is about to get fired, she will cancel the wedding, even though Octave is madly in love with her!
How is Octave going to please everybody while dealing with Guignol’s cheekiness?
