We Are Not Shellfish

A play with puppets and masks

by Zoe Hinks


On the East coast of Kent, 11 year old Leah finds a message in a bottle. Inside is a phone number from a child living in the forest near Calais. With the help of an octopus, Leah hatches a plan to build a boat and sail the channel.

Narrated by Leah’s goldfish, Bertie and Cassandra, We Are Not Shellfish is an alternative coming of age story,about a girl with the imagination, courage and ambition to change the world.
