Description

The West Island College Department of Drama Proudly Presents: Girl in the Goldfish Bowl by Morris Panych

Where: West Island College in the Performance Centre
Dates: May 1, 2, & 3
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Tickets: $15

As Morris Panych’s latest comedy opens, we hear Iris, a precocious girl of ten, saying: “These are the last few days of my childhood.” The death of her goldfish, Amal, she is sure, has been announced by the air-raid sirens during the day’s school drill. For Iris, there remain a few more days of life in a universe that is inherently ordered, where the spirit of her departed and ritually interred goldfish can, of course, be re-incarnated in a lost and amnesiac drifter given to rhetorical questions of seemingly deep philosophical import […] It is into the goldfish bowl of this dysfunctional family of lethargic piranhas, existential bottom-feeders and aggressive guppies that the audience peers with incredulity, acute recognition, hysterical laughter, and an overwhelming sense of the creative healing power of the imagination.” (from Talonbooks.com)

“An uncommon, quirky blend of humour and compassion.” — National Post
