Mainstage Season

Blue Fish in a Tall Clear Vase

A World Premiere Play by Fouad Teymour

October 25 to November 25, 2017

While confined in a suffocatingly tight container, Blue Fish ponders about the state of the universe and his quest for freedom, and tries to concoct a plan for escape. Meanwhile, the artist who drew him must meet a deadline to realize her dreams. Can they work together to achieve their aims?  (This play is inspired by a painting by Maryam Gaber.)
