Death meets his match in Mrs. Fischer, a tenacious granny not ready to breathe her last. In this surreal work of imagination and whimsy, one woman’s fight for survival takes fantastica flight in a showdown with Death himself! “Grim and Fischer” takes its audience on a profound journey that is at turns both hilarious and heart-breaking.
Youth $12 / Adult $15
Suitable for all ages and family friendly, “Grim and Fischer” is performed in full-face mask and a distinct style of storytelling, with a rich soundscape, timeless slapstick and masterful physical performances—a whimsical form rarely seen on North American stages. Audiences have compared it to watching a living cartoon, or ‘live-action Pixar’. And like a cartoon, the power of “Grim and Fischer” lies in its ability to step away from the sharpness of reality and offer a different lens though which to examine a deeper, darker universal struggle: our fear of death.
The Family Series was inspired by an original play, Out of the Box, by Elise Forier, ED at WICA in November 1999. The play was written for the Langley Middle School students and served to engage and make the arts accessible to our local Whidbey Island School District.
Today, the Family Series presents a matinee, free to 6th and 7th graders at the Langley Middle School, and an evening performance open to the public. The shows offer a variety of experiences in theatre, dance, music, puppets, physical comedy and sneaky science education as well as master classes for youth in a local venue thus eliminating the ferry fares and transportation expenses of travel to the mainland.
