The Theatre Arts Guild is proud to present Girl in the Goldfish Bowl (GITGB).. Written by Canadian playwright Morris Panych and winner of the 2003 Dora Mavor Moore award for outstanding new play and the 2004 Governor General Literary Award for English Drama, this kooky comedy is a must-see.

As Amahl her goldfish is flushed away, Iris savours the final golden hours of her childhood amid threats of an atomic disaster, the disintegration of her parents’ marriage, and the arrival of a mysterious stranger who washes up on the doorstep.
