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 Morris Panych, one of Canada’s most acclaimed playwrights, Girl in the Goldfish Bowl is hilarious, yet heart breaking. The award-winning play brings back the absurdity, pain and beauty of growing up.
Girl in the Goldfish Bowl runs April 18 – 4 May 2013 at the Bakehouse Theatre Company in Adelaide, Australia.
