About This Show

Dying Goldfish is a bittersweet comedy about first dates, weddings, and awkward displays of emotion.
Two siblings — Carol, a university instructor and Will, a lonely and aspiring novelist — return home to witness their cousin’s wedding and visit their uncle — a former professor — who has suffered a stroke that has destroyed his ability to control his emotions.
This homecoming reminds both Carol and Will how separate their private lives are from their family lives, and how happy they are to keep things that way. The upshot, however, is the open bar.
This is the ninth play produced by Nosedive Productions since being formed in 1999 by Pete Boisvert and James Comtois. Their play Mayonnaise Sandwiches was picked as a Village Voice Voice Choice, a Must-See by BackStage.com’s Theatregeek and received a 2004 Off-Off-Broadway-Review Award for Overall Excellence
