Vanessa’s life is science. Fact based, evidence led, no nonsense, no monsters. But when a photograph surfaces showing something in Loch Ness, she must embark on a very personal research project.
An extinct fish, a missing father and breath-taking live electronic sound in a new play from the makers of multi award-winning Lorraine & Alan.

'A beautifully hewn story about how we connect to the past, and how our lives are shaped by the no-longer living things we carry with us... A gem of a piece by Bucket Club, a company taking its own very solid place in the world.' Total Theatre
'Bucket Club’s style mixes story theater and toy theater with both whimsy and rigor... scientific precision and obvious warmth... A wonderfully weirdo score that should have Léon Theremin giggling in his grave.' New York Times
