Description

'Enter into a wacky world of sea monsters in high heels and angry mobs with tiny pitchforks' (InDaily.com.au). When Grumms transforms from a normal girl into a squid monster (Creature from the Black Lagoon meets The Muppets), they must hide their secret identity in order to pass in society. Stunning video projections, puppetry and physical comedy combine in this absurd exploration of gender and growing up "normal". Winner – Best Theatre, Adelaide Fringe 2021. ***** (StarPhoenix). 'If you like your theatre madcap, thoughtful and combined with what's-coming-next intrigue, don't miss out' (Advertiser, Adelaide)
