Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.

  • Synopsis

    At 35, Mara is an overqualified underachiever. She works part time in an aquarium, eats ice-cream for breakfast and likes ticking 'single' on forms. She fancies the notion of a threesome… but you can’t have a threesome if you have a baby. A surreal underwater experience about trying to be grown-up and wishing you were a seahorse.
