Mermaid

Beneath the ocean's waves there is no death or pain or separation.  Above, the modern world is beset with war, poverty and desire.  On her sixteenth birthday, a mermaid rises up to the surface, leaving her childhood behind for ever when she falls in love with a mortal prince.  She knows that she can no longer live at the bottom of the ocean - but must she destroy herself in order to be loved?

A bold reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen's tale of love, loss and longing, transported to a contemporary setting, Polly Teale's Mermaid was premiered by Shared Experience in Nottingham Playhouse on a UK tour in 2015.
