Fish Eyes is a raucous, funny, forceful play about adolescence in a small British Columbia town. Now, the play itself is a teenager.
Anita Majumdar — award-winning actress, playwright and choreographer — has performed her one-woman story in cities and towns across Canada for thirteen years.
It's about cultural identity, consent, classical Indian dance, and coming of age.
Fish Eyes in on-stage now at Toronto's Factory Theatre, along with its sister plays Boys With Cars and Let Me Borrow That Top.
As Alisa Siegel discovered, no one is more surprised by the staying power of the material than Ms. Majumdar herself.
