Review: Raw Fish - Theatre Odyssey

"The title may sound cold, bit don’t let it fool you. It’s actually a warmhearted play. The fish in question is sushi. For the play’s unnamed boomer “Dad” and his millennial “Daughter,” hanging out at sushi joints is a family tradition. This time around, the waiter is missing in action. But it’s all for the best. The playwright fills up the downtime with her sprightly, pitch-perfect dialogue. Daughter puts Dad on the spot in a lightning-round discussion of personal boundaries, parenting styles, job opportunities, the food service industry, money and most embarrassing moments. Dad keeps his cool through all her needling ... almost. Mercier's play never turns bitter. And love is always on the menu."
