The Gold FIsh Casino trailer! from sarolta jane cump on Vimeo.


The Gold Fish Casino is currently in post-production. We anticipate releasing it into the waters in FALL of 2014!!

The Gold Fish Casino is directed by Sarolta Jane Cump and produced in collaboration with (The Water Underground).

Rife with double entendre, musical numbers and stunning visuals, The Gold Fish Casino engages the audience with California water politics using memorable characters, speculative fiction and humor. The Gold Fish Casino, follows a three act structure and has a running time of thirty minutes.

The Gold Fish Casino is the queer tale of a plucky Salmon forced by a lack of water to gamble her eggs to get upstream. In her struggle Ms. Coho encounters a Water Nymph with a murky past in the Water Wars dealing dirty cards, a River that has lost her way, an ancient Crocodile stuck playing host to the casino’s vaudeville numbers performed by the bumbling Army Chorus of Engineers, an array of displaced River Creatures and a renegade gang of Water Nymphs. As a storm brews in the distance, the Water Tycoon shuffles in for a cataclysmic show down.
Will the Salmon and her newfound allies rise up? Or will it all go down the drain?
