World Premiere of CLOWNFISH by Amy Dellagiarino to be Presented at Theatre of NOTE

Theatre of NOTE has finally returned and will kick off its first in-person season in over two years with the World Premiere of CLOWNFISH by Amy Dellagiarino and directed by Laura Stribling. CLOWNFISH will preview on Thursday June 30 & Saturday July 2 at 8pm; opens on Thursday, July 7 at 8pm and runs through Saturday, August 6 at Theatre of NOTE, 1517 N Cahuenga Blvd (just north of Sunset) in Hollywood.

Newly released from a mental hospital, Erica is trying hard to be a good bridesmaid but is finding that everyone is treating her differently...and it's getting really annoying. The only thing that could make this reunion worse? The wedding reception might just be being held in a haunted cabin. A dark comedy about mental illness, social stigmas, and the misguided desire to be "normal."
