“DROLL AND REFRESHINGLY UNPRETENTIOUS. Clear-eyed pathway toward comprehension and a knitting together of the important, largely siloed work of marine biologists across the world.”

The Guardian

A science journalist's grand adventure into the depths of the ocean reveals its secrets, perils, and hope.

What if you learned something so important that you packed your bags and set out to tell the world? This is the story of acclaimed science journalist Alanna Mitchell’s grand adventure into the ocean to learn its secrets, face its demons, and come to grips with the devastating implications of climate change that threaten our world.

Sea Sick is her rollicking, true story, refreshingly told in an intimate setting—you might feel like it’s just the two of you hanging out—where Mitchell’s marvelous discoveries are presented with whip smart humor and informed by some of today’s most fascinating scientific discoveries. Based on her Grantham Prize winning best selling book, and updated to reflect the current moment, this show will leave audiences hopeful, inspired, and ready to act.
