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 Hearths Start from Scratch Retreat and the Great Plains Theatre Conference. World premiere.

Written by Emily Krause (A Ribbon About A Bomb; Provenance, a tree play; t h r o u g h o u t i v e n e s s; playwright-in-residence, Exquisite Corpse Company).

Directed by Jenna Rossman (October/November, The Colchester Thunder; Assoc. Director for Safety Net, written and directed by Young Jean Lee).
