Background Twelfth Fish Background

The Twelfth Fish was a play at the Stage. It first premiered in December 2007 and had since then two encores. Rookie rewrote the script when the play made its second encore in January 2012.

Plot

This Shakespeare-like play is about a Countess, a Jester, and a Bard going to fish. A fish goes BLUB BLUB many times, and the three try to catch and eat it. The overall concept of the script also resembles Monty Python's "Find The Fish" sketch, which also features a search quest for a fish.

The re-written version tells the story of how the Jester and the Bard help their friend, the Countess, find the Twelfth Fish, so she can count it.

Parodies

As the play is heavily influenced by Shakespeare's plays, some of the lines on the original script parody famous lines on some of Shakespeare's works.

  • "To fish or not to fish, that is the question!" references "To be, or not to be", a line on Hamlet.
  • "O fishing line, fishing line! Wherefore art thou doing fine?" references Juliet's "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?", line from Romeo and Juliet.
  • "What fish through yonder ocean swim?" is a reference to "What light through yonder window breaks?", also from Romeo and Juliet.
  • "The iceberg's a stage and we are penguins!" is a reference to "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players", lines from As You Like It.
  • "A stage where every penguin plays a part." is a reference to "And one man in his time plays many parts", line also from As You Like It.
  • "A fish! A fish! My puffle for a fish!" is a reference to "A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!", line from the play "Richard III".
  • "If fish be the food of life, waddle on!" is a reference to "If music be the food of love, play on!", line from Twelfth Night.

Trivia

  • Many of the messages in the original play were based on quotes from plays by William Shakespeare. The title of the play comes from his play, the "Twelfth Night."
  • During Medieval Party 2008, The Twelfth Fish was played at the Cove.
  • In January 2012, Rookie rewrote the script for the play, making it easier to read for the actors.
    • He was also unaware why the Countess wasn't counting, and why there was only one Fish instead of twelve (which also made him wonder where the other eleven went).
