Life in the Admiral’s fleet seems sunny until the Captain’s ship springs a leak. What ensues is a farcical debacle of mismanagement, miscommunication and mischief as the Captain’s rag-tag team try to convince their egotistical master that action must be taken. The Leak is a rollicking physical comedy for all the family. This pun-tastic satire explores what happens when management fails and nobody takes responsibility in a crisis.
“A jaw droppingly perfect piece of modern absurdism. An all ages show that was brilliantly performed.”– Matthew Richard Walsh, Cracked Actors.
