The Astonishing Singing Fish! (2019)

 

There is a new show in town! Almost sold to Cirque du Soleil, this sideshow act is dreaming of the West End.

But it’s a rocky road for a singing goldfish who wants to play the lead in Les Miserables. Along with his hapless scientist friend he will warm your heart with his dulcet baritone voice in this new musical comedy. You gotta see it to believe it.

Combining a mixture of catchy songs, very silly jokes and a healthy dose of sight gags, the Human & Fish duo will have to figure out how to navigate the treacherous waters of show-business and make this dream a reality. And as expected, nothing goes to plan.

The work of FLYING DUTCHMAN Theatre is characterised by its fairytale-like quality. Combining the virtues of different art forms, their stories are told through puppetry, music, physical theatre and new writing.

Performed at The Brockley Jack Studio & UK Tour.

"The Astonishing Singing Fish is an incredible achievement.
It is one of those plays, that if you don’t see it, you can’t really imagine it.
It is utterly bizarre and made in a way you have probably never seen before and under the direction of Georgia Murphy,
it astonished the audience of The Brockley Jack Studio Theatre."
