GIRL IN THE GOLDFISH BOWL

Details

A Comedy by Morris Panych
Directed by Janet Munsil

“My mother says you know when you’re grown up: it’s the moment you stop being happy and start remembering when you used to be.” As Amahl the goldfish is flushed away, precocious pre-teen Iris savours the final golden hours of her childhood­­ amid threats of an atomic disaster, the disintegration of her parents’ marriage, and the arrival of a mysterious stranger who washes up on the doorstep.
