"And then the fisherman says-... and then the fish... the fi-".

A woman stands at a microphone. She can't remember the punchline.

Fusing poetry and song, award-winning UK theatre company Unholy Mess present a funny, strange and poignant play about growing up and the lasting legacy of abuse.

Performance poet Jemima Foxtrot takes you on a powerful journey exploring memory, childhood and what happens when we can't get to the punchline.

Above the Mealy-Mouthed Sea is experimental, absurdist anti-nostalgia like you've never seen it before.

"The brilliant Foxtrot is the one to watch" The Observer.
"Original and inventive...an engaging and poignant journey" ★★★★ The Wee Review, 2017.
