My Ocean 

"My Ocean captures the anxiety of our culture over the degradation of nature better than any story I have seen, heard, or read."
- Plank Magazine

"Sasha Singer-Wilson’s script is filled with poignant observations on childhood relationships and ways of coping in the face of trauma."
- Vancouver Sun
 

Armed with a karaoke machine and a Jellyfish dance, Lenny delivers an unforgettable Speaker’s League presentation.

 

Twelve-year old environmentalist Lenny has his lucky pouch around his neck, and the eczema behind his knees is hardly even itchy. He is more ready than ever for his Speakers League presentation on Sea Turtles! Part way through, Lenny can’t help but reveal the dramatic events leading up to his presentation and the whole thing derails. The line between Lenny’s past and present blurs before our eyes.

 

My Ocean is about broken homes, finding hope in our uncertain future, and how we might find forgiveness.

 

The short version of My Ocean premiered at Brave New Play Rites, Studio 1398, Vancouver, March 12-15, 2015.
