The One That Got Away (Ottawa)

The One that Got Away toured to Magnetic North Theatre Festival 2007 in Ottawa, where it won Audience Choice Award and Favourite Show in the 10 year History of Festival.

The One That Got Away tells the story of a girl with a fish where her heart should be, chasing her rapscallion grandfather into an afterlife reckoning with love and loss. This play-in-a-pool combines narrative, music and innovative water staging in a tale of submerged Jewish identity. It premiered in Vancouver, as a co-production with Electric Company and the Norman Rothstein Theatre, and received 11 nominations and 4 Jessie Awards including Best Production of 2002.
