Meet Henry and Alice, 30-50 something’s, married, no children, one goldfish – Orca, and both slightly bored. Henry is a man of many talents, an actor, sportsman, president of the United States, secret agent, you name it (all in his head though).Alice, his long suffering wife was ‘born to be a housewife’ and really enjoys tidying up ‘Wiping off the worksurfaces. That’s the biggie. Wiping off the worksurfaces’- at least according to Henry.

In an effort to escape from the mundane reality of their lives and their marriage, both Henry and Alice like to escape into their own little fantasy worlds, often with hilarious results.Things get complicated when fantasy begins to blur into reality, and no-one, except Orca really knows what’s going on anymore....

NB. No fish were harmed during the staging of this production.
