Winner – Best Theatre, Adelaide Fringe 2021

"Enter into a wacky world of sea monsters in high heels and angry mobs with tiny pitchforks." - In Daily, 2021

When Grumms transforms into a horrible squid monster (think 'Creature from the Black Lagoon' meets 'The Muppets'), they must hide their identity in order to pass in society as a "normal human woman".  A touching story of acceptance that anyone can relate to; with spellbinding video projection, puppetry and laugh-out-loud physical comedy, SOMETHING IN THE WATER is an absurd exploration of gender, comic books and growing up "normal".
