Clockfire Theatre Company’s upcoming production, Plenty of Fish in the Sea is set to be a hit, with hints of dark humour and a familiarity many of us who have backpacked through Europe can relate to. The production only runs for two nights, so don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this talented ensemble at work. 

What’s Plenty of Fish in the Sea about?

2023 Northern France. Separated from his Contiki Tour group, an English backpacker is stranded in the devout fishing village of Saint-Cotriade. Technology is complicated, conversation is sparse and his temporary lodgings in an ancient monastery bring him tête-à-tête with an unpredictable kind of hook-up culture. Plenty of fish in the sea is a darkly humorous and physically adventurous contemporary fable about finding the perfect catch.

About the Clockfire Theatre Company

Clockfire Theatre Company is an independent Australian theatre company founded in 2012 that creates highly visual and physical performances through a process of intensive collaboration led by Artistic Director, Emily Ayoub and Associate Artistic Director Madeline Baghurst. 

Clockfire is committed to the making of new Australian theatre through a genuinely group-devised, ensemble-based process. Sydney-based but not Sydney-bound, the ensemble aims to develop original stories which are imaginative, visceral evocations of the everyday and beyond.

Known as ‘Sydney’s absurdist innovators’, Clockfire was most recently invited to devise and perform the world premiere production The Night Parade of One Hundred Goblins, commissioned and co-produced by The Art Gallery of NSW for Sydney Festival 2020. The sell-out season received critical acclaim and was our most recent offering in a series of innovative, highly physical theatre experiences.
