It is with sadness and concern for our artists that we will be postponing this production

We hope to re-program this production in 2021 and trust you will understand the need for this decision at this time.

We strongly encourage anyone who has bought a ticket to consider making this a donation to the artists involved. This is a very unnerving time for all, but the independent arts sector is, as always, particularly vulnerable. The artists have been working very hard and we hope to support them as best as we can. We have set up the possibility of donating directly to artists.

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.
