Welcome to Cygnet Players

We are a fun and friendly amateur theatre society based in South West London.

Big Fish

We are thrilled to be bringing Big Fish to the stage, performing 7th – 10th September 2022 at the Putney Arts Theatre.

With music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and book by John August, Big Fish is based on Daniel Wallace’s 1998 novel, Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions, and the 2003 film written by John August and directed by Tim Burton.

Big Fish explores the relationship between sixty-year-old Edward Bloom, a travelling salesman, and his adult son Will, who looks for what is behind his father’s tall stories. In the present-day real world, Edward faces his mortality while Will prepares to become a father himself. In the storybook past, Edward ages from a teenager, encountering a Witch, a Giant, a Mermaid, and the love of his life, Sandra. The stories meet as Will discovers the secret his father never revealed.
