Food for Fish

A portion of the proceeds from Food for Fish will be donated to the Nest, NCC’s on-campus food bank and Long Island Cares, the Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank

 WHAT:  A story of grief, unrequited loved, gender identity and a novel in a bottle.


“Food for Fish is a wild ride through the imagination of a tortured artist exploring: Love, grief, gender identity, self-worth, and existential turmoil. Who am I? What do I really want? Where can I find love? What happens when I lose love? What is the point of it all? Am I telling my own story in life, or is someone else telling it for me? I find those questions incredibly, brutally human. 


This play uses humor, abstraction, darkness, and absurdity to grapple with these questions. The intention of this play is not to be realistic (although there may be moments that feel very natural), but rather to live in the fluidity of emotional truth. Have you ever been overwhelmed by a feeling? Maybe love, jealousy, disgust, betrayal, infatuation, etc., but come to understand that the feeling inside doesn’t match the actual circumstances being played out in real life? In Food for Fish our aim is to explore the abstract representation of these big feelings, not the reality of the circumstances.”

Director, Michael Mullen
