In prehistoric Southeast Alaska, when humans and animals still talked and lived amongst each other, a monstrous sea creature destroys an entire village. Only the young girl Aanteinatu survives and is left to forge a new life among strangers. A mysterious wolf and an ethereal legend guide the child to find the wisdom and strength to become the woman of her destiny.
Devilfish has taken place with the support of the Mellon Foundation’s National Playwright Residency Program, administered in partnership with HowlRound Theatre Commons.
