Esther Choi and the Fish That Drowned

Performances of ESTHER CHOI AND THE FISH THAT DROWNED are currently postponed until the dangers of COVID-19 have passed. Please follow Simpatico Theatre on social media for more information moving forward.


Esther Choi is your favorite all-American, overachieving-Asian teen except she has a ghost. Anthony Gibson is Esther’s best friend and (spoiler alert) he’s dead. Mr. Choi is Esther’s grandfather and he owns a haunted dry cleaner on Cheltenham Ave. in Philadelphia. In an (un)likely turn of events, Esther must grapple with grief, loneliness, and winning first chair in high school orchestra, all while living up to her grandfather’s new expectations.

This production contains discussion and reference to gun violence.

All performances Pay What You Decide.
