Liz and Ethan are navigating the pitfalls of being a teenager in 2016, while dealing with their own depression and anxiety. Along the way they meet the Superhero Red Fish who claims he’s only here to help them… but what happens when our innermost voice becomes our worst enemy? Redfish is a playful, poignant play that will ring true for anyone who lives with depression or who knows someone who does.

Start the conversation about mental health at your school. After seeing an earlier production of Red Fish, youths commented “As a young person who struggles with depression I think that others should see this play whether they have depression or not” and “After seeing this play I felt more moved to get out there and talk to people about depression”.

Redfish relates to the following Healthy Living curriculum outcomes:

  • distinguish between positive and negative peer influence and acquire skills for resisting/asserting oneself in negative peer influence
  • examine the role of bystander in cases where a peer/friend is experiencing emotional, physical, psychological harm
  • demonstrate positive self-identity that effectively enables them to manage their health, relationships, and interactions with the world

  • think critically and make informed decisions to enhance health of self, those around oneself, and within a global context
  • demonstrate effective communication and interpersonal skills that facilitate positive relationships between themselves and the world
