This magical show has toured to sold out houses and rave reviews all over the world receiving numerous awards including ‘Outstanding Solo Show’ at the New York International Fringe Festival, ‘Best Theatre’ at Auckland Fringe Festival, ‘Best Puppetry’ at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and ‘Best Male Performer’ at Dublin Fringe Festival. Let’s just say it leaves audiences spell-bound.
The seas have risen, billions have died and those who are left live on farms atop skyscrapers, atop mountains. The scientists have tried everything. Floating islands sank, space probes found nothing, and the giant sponges, visible from the moon, are now rotting icons of failure.
Now science and humanity are turning to the oceans themselves. A last ditch effort to save the human race requires journeying down through the mysterious depths of the deep blue sea to find a new place for us to live.
Alvin Sputnik, who has just lost his wife, accepts this perilous mission so that he may follow her soul down to the underworld so that they can be together again once more – a touching story of enduring love and the end of the world.
