Can Fish Drink Tea?

The watery adventures of a submarine in the street, a barbie in a fish and the sweet revenge of a teabag. A new outdoor show from Garlic Theatre with animated objects and bizarre puppets. Can Fish Drink Tea? is directed by Jean Christophe Canivet of Theatre D'Illusia, and uses puppet animation, clowning and live music to celebrate what happens when you drink a lovely cup of tea...
