    North Shore Fish

    Presented by at Gloucester Stage

    July 18 - August 4, 2013


    North Shore Fish

    by Israel Horovitz
    Directed by Robert Walsh

    Set in Gloucester, Massachusetts, North Shore Fish depicts the painfully real and funny way of life for the workers (mostly women) in a failing fish-processing plant. The once-thriving plant which formerly processed the daily catch of the local fishing fleet, has been reduced to repacking frozen blocks of fish imported from Japan for TV dinners. Tenacity, colorful irreverence and, ultimately, the fierce loyalty of a group of Gloucester assembly-line workers brand this Pulitzer Prize nominated comedic drama. The ever-present challenges faced by Cape Anne’s fishing industry make Horovitz’s play as relevant as when it christened the current home of the Gloucester Stage Company in 1986.

    ‘A blue collar elegy, a tough, funny and eventually poignant look at the expendability of people when their jobs - and lives - become obsolete.’ – ASSOCIATED PRESS
