SOMETHING FOR THE FISH

Tickets: $18 online and $20 at the door (cash only).

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 coastal town rocked by the sudden disappearance of the sea life it depends on. It is a climate change parable, a contemporary reaction to classic American small town plays, and an intimate look at the transformative (and transfiguring) power of grief, featuring music, visual art, extreme weather, and a little magic.

SOMETHING FOR THE FISH has been developed at The Hearth’s Start from Scratch Retreat and the Great Plains Theatre Conference. World premiere.
