Something in the Water

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Comedy
Canada • Australian Premiere
Sexy, gay and incredibly stupid, this international award-winning comedy brings you an hour filled with "infectious silliness". When Grumms transforms into a horrible squid-like monster (think Creature from the Black Lagoon meets The Muppets ) they must hide their secret identity and disguise as a "normal, human woman". Cartoonish chaos ensues, and only by being their true self can Grumms become the superhero they've always wanted to be.
Superhero or horrible monster?
You decide.

Stunning video projections, puppetry and "laugh-out loud" physical comedy combine in this absurd exploration of gender, comics and growing up "normal".

★★★★★ "I can't recommend this play enough" The Star Phoenix.
"Outrageously unconventional" Orlando Weekly.
"Profound, honest & hilarious" Theatre in London.
