Tyranny, Destiny and a giant squid

The Quickening Theatre is proud to bring Fish Face, a new solo piece by playwright/performer Ginette Mohr, to the Vancouver Fringe Festival. Fish Face follows a young woman into an underwater universe as she battles a giant sea monster and confronts her destiny. The dramatic comedy contains six distinct characters, physicalities and dialects, and incorporates dance and an original music score.

Fish Face is an exciting opportunity for playwright/performer Ginette Mohr and director/co-creator Kate Fenton to play in the realm of fantasy and explore theatrical possibilities of healing and transformation. Mohr has performed professionally all over North America with companies such as The Second City, Neptune Theatre and Theatre New Brunswick. She returns to Vancouver a decade after graduating from Simon Fraser University’s Acting Conservatory Program.

Fish Face premiered at the 2009 Ottawa Fringe Festival and completed a successful sold-out run this summer at the Toronto Fringe Festival. NOW Magazine gave Fish Face Critic’s Pick, and named it for Outstanding New Play, Outstanding Production, Outstanding Performance and Outstanding Design.
