    This play is a FINALIST for the 2020-2021 In-Progress New Play Reading Series at Unicorn Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri. It is our pleasure to support ESTHER CHOI AND THE FISH THAT DROWNED.

    It is a special thing when you meet a play that depicts big emotions in teenagers without seeming trite or like it is talking to down to them. This play deals with loss on so many different, swirling levels and features really impactful intersectional conversations between two bright young POC. This is how young people deserve to see themselves depicted. Highly recommended. :)

    What a wonderful play that deals with friendship, loneliness and familial isolation.

    This play would be so devastating if it weren't for the incredible humor Walters uses throughout for levity. What this does to me instead, is create these intense moments of juxtaposition where my need to laugh and cry crash on top of one another. Would love to see this produced!

    I enjoy how this play unfolds and lets us know more and more about these characters and how they try to keep each other safe. Very rarely do we get to see a grand-daugther grand-father relationship portrayed on stage and I think this play does it beautifully while dealing with important contemporary concepts. When grandfather talks about the cops being so mean my heart just breaks!

    Ester Choi is a young woman struggling with abandonment, grief, anger, as she questions her motivations and choices. As Walters masterfully reveals her characters through a series of telling vignettes, we are drawn into their familiar, yet unsettling world.

    An absolutely haunting memory play and fascinating character study. I loved how nuanced this play’s exploration of personal aspirations is. Please someone produce this!!!
