“If your tears are salty it’s not a surprise, it’s just the sea coming out of your eyes!”

A little fish lives in a little glass of water. One day the cat decides to have him for breakfast but he breaks the glass and hurts himself. The fish escapes and hides under the blanket in the bedroom. When he comes out he finds a new world full of air, strange creatures like the hoover-fish, and lots of questions to answer.

Performed by Patrick Lynch with clowning, songs and good old-fashioned slapstick, this is a highly interactive show where in the end, between the up and the down, we see a sky at the bottom of the sea, lit up by shining star-fish.

For children aged 3 years and over.

The Fish’s Wishes replaces the advertised show Room in the Sky, which has been cancelled due to illness.
