Swimming with Goldfish
September 12, 2006

Jagged North Productions has generously chosen to donate half of every ticket sold for their September 12th performance of Swimming with Goldfish to HYTES. What do you get when you combine an A.D.D. teen with a stream, a kite, a daisy, eight characters, one actor and a fishbowl? You get the new A. G. Boss (CBC Arts & Entertainment producer; Alberta Anthology) play Swimming with Goldfish.

Boss’s funny and touching play tells the story of Cecil and his goldfish Salmon who are spending a day beside a peaceful and serene river. Only problem is there’s a storm moving in that might whip up a school, a car ride, a funeral, and a birth. Swimming with Goldfish was commissioned by Edmonton’s Walterdale Theatre and dramaturged by Governor General’s Award winning playwright Vern Thiessen.
