Laugh-out-loud silent comedy from an award-winning French company

Written and directed by Pierre Guillois

Co-written by Agathe L’Huillier and Olivier Martin-Salvan

Once upon a time, in three small attic apartments in Paris, a big man, a tall thin man and a curvaceous blonde are neighbours. This would be a romantic story if it wasn’t for the fact that these three oddballs have a special talent for messing things up. Messing everything up. 

Winner of the Molière Award for Best Comedy, Fishbowl follows the hilarious misadventures of three eccentric and lovable anti-heroes separated only by paper-thin walls.

Fishbowl is a masterful piece of physical comedy and technical wizardry as objects fly around, characters fall flat on their faces and a series of fires, leaks and storms compete to baffle the hapless inhabitants and reduce the stage to chaos.
