Bea is scared of everything - sharks, needles, and her beleaguered seaside town crumbling into the ocean. Most fearful, to Bea, is the idea of making a best friend: showing your true, vulnerable, terrified self to another human being.
Suddenly, a shiver of sharks, desperate to save their own souls, presents a predicament actually worth fretting about. Might a real catastrophe prompt Bea to show her classmates just how capable she really is?
School of Sharks is a comedic, eco-conscious work for young people that explores mental health, climate change, friendship, and our relationship to marine animals.

Kyle Macmanus has invested millions in a high-tech work of art -- ten human-figure sculptures programmed to perform thousands of movements, monologues, dialogues, and more.
But just when Kyle is about to sell the sculpture, it malfunctions; the figures are alive. As each one struggles to achieve autonomy, they begin a fatal race against their desperate owner's destructive plan.
