The Goldfish Bowl

Comedy about two goldfish, Anton and Liam, as they contemplate life from their bowl and try to understand Martin and Susan, their owners.

Liam is a Friday-night-in-with-a-Dick-Francis-and-a-box-of-Terry's-All-Gold goldfish, whereas Anton is erudite, sophisticated and sardonic, and does not know how he ended up trapped in this bowl.
