Play Synopsis

A comedy set in October, 1962, during the Cuban Missile crisis, Girl in the Goldfish Bowl tells the story of the last moments of childhood for Iris, a wise, irrepressible ten year old, who is trying to navigate the domestic crisis of her parents’ crumbling marriage even as the entire world teeters on the edge of nuclear war. When a mysterious stranger who closely resembles her beloved dead goldfish appears, Iris hopes he may be the answer to their problems. Set in a boarding house in a cannery town near Vancouver, this Governor General’s Award-winning comedy follows Iris’ journey full of hope, heartbreak and halibut with a quirky blend of humour and compassion.

Roles

IRIS (note: played by an adult), 10, precocious, curious, verbal, active and needy. Her goal is to keep her family together.

SYLVIA, 30-40, IRIS’ non-maternal mother, trapped by marriage and motherhood, trying to leave the family.

OWEN, 30-40, a war vet, unemployed, escaping his pain through drugs and physics. Loves Sylvia.

MR. LAWRENCE, 25-45, an anxious, sensitive, and confused stranger who may or may not be a poet, lunatic and/or criminal.

ROSE, 40-50, a cynical, hard drinking, opportunistic boarder who has her eyes on OWEN. Works at the cannery by day, parties hard at the Legion at night.
