"Six contestants are chosen at random to compete for 11 million dollars on the new reality television show, "Fish Bowl." While they wait for the production team to arrive and give them instructions, patience is tried, truths come out, and murder becomes the name of the game. Fish Bowl, with its absurd satirical vision of Reality TV, asks: How far will producers go for ratings? How far will contestants go for fame and fortune? And how far will we go to entertain you? And it all goes that far," state press notes.

"I Ate What? Theatre Company produces new and original plays that integrate multi-media and dance. They are a collaborative group of artists whose mutual passion for absurdity has molded a unique theatrical vision, focusing on projects that seek to expose the ridiculous nature of humanity with urgency and biting comedy."

The show will feature sets by Jian Jung, lighting by Ted Sullivan, sound by Matthew Lebe, videography by Jason Kichline, costumes by Sara James and music by Stephen Pitkin.

Fish Bowl's performance schedule is Wednesday through Monday at 8pm; Sundays at 3pm (no Tuesdays).  Tickets are $15 at the door; visit for more information.
