★★★★ “Can a science journalist save the world through the power of theatre?”
— The Guardian
SEA SICK, scientist and journalist Alanna Mitchell’s
critically acclaimed production about the state of the global ocean uses science and her own delicate wit to tell us about her journey to the bottom of the ocean, the demons she discovered there, and her hope for the future.
Mitchell is an award-winning Canadian journalist and author (New York Times, CBC’s Quirks & Quarks, Globe and Mail, and more) who writes about science and social trends specializing in investigative reporting. Sea Sick is inspired by her international bestseller and award-winning book of the same name.
