    A short, tender romantic comedy that asks, “Can two fish bring old childhood friends together?” Well, if the fish can’t, Benny’s mother sure knows how…even though she’s dead. This love story brings you the hope that you need to believe, no matter how many false starts you have in life.…it’s never too late for the real thing. It’s all about timing and persistence and maybe helping the one who never saw too clearly in the first place. True love can be just a blink or fishbowl away.

    Originally produced at Write Act Rep in Hollywood California.

    Performed in an evening of short plays, “Benny and Pearl Loving in a Goldfish Bowl,” received the hugest response from the audience every night. It’s a slice of life that everyone can relate to! Mary Beth Pape
