about this production

school of jesus fish Dr. Benjamin Hamilton's first patient as a therapist at St. Lucy's psychiatric ward is Ann Fencik, a 33 year old woman who claims she is a prophet -- God's daughter on earth -- perhaps the "second coming." As Dr. Hamilton seeks to cure her, Ann's presence begins to have startling effects on the other psychiatric patients. Is their sudden recovery a result of a psychiatrc breakthrough, or of Anne's healing?

LbP premiered the original School of Jesus Fish as part of the 2001 Los Angeles Edge of the World Theater Festival, and Backstage West said, "the writing is powerful and the characters' emotional pain rings true and believable." This new full-length version expands all of the original characters, and introduces a new one (Shae Fishback) as well.
