Synopsis


"I expect the plummet, I brace, but no.


The wind is now a breeze is now a whisper and I've stopped; suspended in the sky …”


Bayview is the only B&B closed for business on the busiest weekend of the year in this faded seaside town.


Greasy fish 'n' chips, sticks of rock and pot-bellied Spiderman is throwing himself off the pier.


The annual 'Birdman' competition is in full flight.


Caterpillar is a darkly funny, searing and tender drama about when we find ourselves standing on the edge, do we dare to step off?
