Girl in the Goldfish Bowl by Morris Panych
As Morris Panych's latest comedy opens, we hear Iris, a precious girl of ten, saying: "these are the last few days of my childhood." The death of her goldfish, she is sure, has been announced by the air-raid sirens during the day's school drill. For Iris there remain a few more days of life in a universe that is inherently ordered, where the spirit of her dearly departed goldfish can, of course, be re-incarnated in a lost and amnesiac drifter given to rhetorical questions of seemingly deep philosophical import.
