Hilariously quirky circus show with death-defying feats born from wild imagination…

Incredible stunts are woven into a gentle story about a slightly eccentric girl and her rather unusual pet… a squid, played by a 6ft male contortionist who lives in the bath!

A young woman (who has an unusual relationship to glass) works in a science lab experimenting on sea creatures. Finding the work cruel, she rescues a squid and takes it home to live in her bathtub. Despite her best efforts to make him feel at home, eventually she is faced with the age-old problem of… ‘If you love something, then set it free.’
