'Enter into a wacky world of sea monsters in high heels and angry mobs with tiny pitchforks' (InDaily.com.au). When Grumms transforms from a normal girl into a squid monster (Creature from the Black Lagoon meets The Muppets), they must hide their secret identity in order to pass in society. Stunning video projections, puppetry and physical comedy combine in this absurd exploration of gender and growing up "normal". Winner - Best Theatre, Adelaide Fringe 2021. ***** (StarPhoenix). 'If you like your theatre madcap, thoughtful and combined with what's-coming-next intrigue, don't miss out' (Advertiser, Adelaide)

Edinburgh interview: S.E. Grummett on Something in the Water at Summerhall

"When I first graduated from acting school, I was frustrated that there weren't more opportunities for queer and trans folks like myself...Self-creation was, and continues to be, a way out: a way of being myself and my gender onstage"

Greg Stewart, Theatre Weekly, 25th July 2022

Edinburgh preview: Something in the Water

When Grumms transforms into a squid monster (think Creature from the Black Lagoon meets The Muppets), they must hide their secret identity and disguise as a 'normal human woman'.
