“My mother says you know when you’ve grown up. It’s the moment you stop being happy and start remembering when you used to be.”
It’s 1962 and the Cold War is at its peak. For ten-year-old Iris, not only is the world on the brink of extinction, so is her childhood. When the eccentric young girl discovers an amnesiac drifter on the shores of a remote Tasmanian fishing town, she’s sure he’s the reincarnation of her goldfish, sent to rescue her family and her youth.
Written by one of Canada’s most acclaimed playwrights, Girl in the Goldfish Bowl is hilarious, yet heart breaking, and a little bit odd. The award-winning play brings back the absurdity, pain, and beauty of growing up.
Directed by Peter Green (who brought you shows like Educating Rita, Misery, and The Drawer Boy), and featuring Miranda Pike, Patrick Clements, Bronwen James, Scott Perry, and Romina Verdiglione.
