An extraordinary adventure about water, dripping with fun!

Maya LOVES water! Swimming in the sea, splashing in her paddling pool. But one summer’s day, she gets sucked up the bathroom tap - SQUOOSH! - and along the water pipes! WHOOAAHHHH!

And you get to join in, making the show’s soundtrack with live beatboxing and watery sound effects! Watch out for the water pistol fight - don’t get squirted!

Come with Maya as she finds out more about the beauty, fun and challenges of water in an age of plastic and climate change.
