Two performers. Two pairs of goggles. A fish tank.
When our pet fish, Sunny and Boo, die, we realise that our friendship is in crisis. Goggles is a show we’re making for them. 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.
