Indian Ink Theatre Company returns with Kiss the Fish, Inspired by the true story of a luxury resort abandoned by humans and entirely occupied by monkeys. This production of a simple South Asian island with an array of musical instruments, puppetry, an ensemble of actors and Balinese comic masks.

The story follows Sidu, a young man eager to leave his tropical paradise home until a new eco-resort promises life-changing riches, leaving every village miser, entrepreneur, bride and priest jostling for their slice of the dream. In a turn of events, the island finds its fate in the hands of Sidu—who everyone agrees is a very odd fish.
