About The Mermaid

…she joined the chorus of the sea-doomed and sung the song that only sirens do, thrashing her tail and howling for ​herself.​

The Mermaid i​s a​ reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s ​The Little Mermaid​, ​created by an award-winning intergenerational team of teenage and adult theatre makers. ​Their re-telling traces the journey of a fifteen year old mermaid and her transformation, obsession, sacrifice, self-destruction and self-actualisation. ​A tragicomedy ​with a teenage chorus that has a screaming vision for a hopeful tomorrow.
