You’ll arf, you’ll cry as you dive into a day in the life of 'Lucille and Cecilia', a pair of performing sea lions attempting to escape the confines of the circus.

One is desperate to get out, sick of her monotonous existence. The other is blinded by the ecstasy of her surroundings; buckets of fish on tap and daily cool down massages.
The story is narrated by the sea lions themselves in their native tongue – arf – but once they discover the art of human language, suddenly their lives become a lot more complex…

Lucille and Cecilia is a tale full of unexpected barking, finely combed moustaches and friendship. Oh, and murder.
