Me & My Bee


made in collaboration with Made My Wardrobe

Two performers. Two pairs of goggles. A fish tank.


We've made show to give our pet fish, Sunny and Boo, the happy ending they deserve. We think about whether we love each other as much as Sunny and Boo had loved each other. We think about whether it would be possible to love each other more. We think that might be too much, but then we think about living without one another. This show is an ode to friendship; a quirky comedy about fish, friends and keeping afloat.



“Lovely young work… deceptively funny…” Lyn Gardner

The Me & My Bee Tour was supported by house. The making of it was supported by Cambridge Junction, ArtsDepot, The Garage, Theatre Delicatessen, Grow Wild, Worboys Productions & Pleasance Theatres. 

Told with a tender intimacy, 'dressed.', is a true story told by four women who have been friends since school. 


After being stripped at gun point, Lydia set out to redress herself with a new healing set of armour. Lydia now only wears clothes she has made. 


Combining choreography, live sewing, comedy and original music, 'dressed.' celebrates the power clothes have to define us, to liberate us, to hide us and to embellish us.
