Sixteen year old Ulla is attempting to become the youngest person to sail the world single-handedly in her trusty sailing boat 'The Homer', with only her cat Binnacle to keep her company as she navigates the high seas. All is not plain sailing, as our heroine encounters mythical creatures and obstacles on her journey, including Cy-ops, a one-eyed, over-keen robotic customs official who mistakes her cat for smuggled contraband, and Sylla, a dangerous sea creature whose body and mind have been horribly twisted by radioactive rubbish dumped into the ocean. Meanwhile the voices of the Sirens, Ulla's friends and family, call out to her from across the waves, tempting her to give up her lonely voyage and come home. The show is inspired by Homer's Odyssey, includes live music and puppetry and is suitable for children aged 7+, families and any adult with a sense of fun and wonder.
