About the show

Stories in Theatre in association with Le Fils du Grand Réseau presents:

The hilarious misadventures of three eccentric and lovable anti-heroes crammed in their wacky rooftop bedsits. The funniest show in Europe comes to Edinburgh after a sell-out tour. The Molière Award for Best Comedy Play winner is a true physical comedy extravaganza!

Paper-thin walls barely separate three neighbours who strike up unlikely and moving friendships. The show packs a punch with technical genius, an incredibly realistic set, and tricks and surprises that shock and delight audiences.

Fishbowl premieres in the UK, expect Charlie Chaplin and Mr Bean antics.
