Red Fish, a ‘comedy about depression’.

Liz and Ethan are navigating the pitfalls of being a teenager in 2016, while dealing with their own depression and anxiety. Along the way they meet the Superhero Redfish who claims he’s only here to help them… but what happens when our innermost voice becomes our worst enemy?

Reviewers call Redfish

“an entirely unique perspective on how Depression manifests itself…creative, engaging and with a metaphor that is strong and clear…moving and yet comical”.

And youth agree,

As a young person who struggles with depression I think that others should see this play whether they have depression or not…[A]fter seeing this play I felt more moved to get out there and talk to people about depression”.
