SOMETHING FOR THE FISH
World premiere at CPR - Center for Performance Research, August 2018.
A fisherman in a small coastal town dreams of mass marine extinction, and hauls in empty traps each day. A prodigal son returns, looking for answers. Three young women are beginning to change form, and nobody is talking about it. And yes, some time in the past, on a particularly cold midnight, a woman walked into the sea. It has happened before.
SOMETHING FOR THE FISH is a play about people on the verge of enormous change, set in a small coastal town rocked by the sudden disappearance of the sea life it depends on. It is both a climate change parable and an intimate look at the transformative (and transfiguring) power of grief.
