THE FISH CAGE
2021

DIRECTOR

The Rondo, Bath

The Alma Tavern, Bristol

Written by Douglas Murdoch

Produced by Greedy Pig Theatre Company

Connor is a nineteen year-old introvert, obsessed with comic books and superheroes. He’s at his happiest when he’s alone with his own thoughts. Except... for the next three days, he’s not.


In a world where criminals store their consciousnesses in others to evade capture, Connor now finds himself with an eccentric, charismatic and quite possibly homicidal newcomer in his head, and a fight for control begins. The Fish Cage is a thrilling, funny and gritty look into how a normal family’s loyalties shift when control starts to slip away.


Because when you share a mind with someone, nothing stays hidden for long...

Genres/themes: Play, Dark Comedy, Thriller, Futuristic, Naturalistic

with Kaby’s tight direction beautifully bringing out the light and shade within Withey’s extended monologue-come-duologues; the switches in physicality and vocal energy between Withey’s two characters are utterly seamless.

The direction, also by Kaby is fluid and precise; bringing a great energy to the small stage.
