She’s on a plane. She’s 30,000 feet in the air. And on the ground, back home, an emergency is unfolding.
Kettle of Fish
Lisa is on her way to a new country for her work. She has spent months learning. She’s read the books, she’s watched the YouTube videos. She knows this business.
But something has happened thousands of feet below, hundreds of miles away. A disaster. A tragedy. Something that prompts her to question what is more important to her; where she has come from? Or where she is going?
As reality warps around her, Lisa is forced to make a decision in the sky.
From Brad Birch, writer of the ★★★★ Tremor and The Brink, and returning director Caitlin McLeod (★★★★ Brenda, 2015), comes the premiere of an otherworldly one-woman show that asks whether we have any control over anything at all.
