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?
Stunning video projections, puppetry and “laugh-out loud” physical comedy combine in this absurd exploration of gender, comics and growing up “normal”.
Created through collaboration with Deanna Fleysher and Mind of a Snail, Something in the Water explores creator/performer S.E. Grummett’s real-life experience coming out and transitioning as trans.
The show recently got back from the Adelaide Fringe Festival, where it won Best Theatre and sold out its entire season.
