The Mermaid’s Table - Summer Nights 2024
The spiraling of four women’s dreams.
Enter the spiralling world of The Mermaid’s Table where remnants of Margaret Atwood and Becket collide. Set just around the corner in time and space, where human desperation accumulates and betrayals loom, molluscs, arthropods and other beings reside. This play of interwoven realities explores the endurance of dreams as characters resist disintegration.
A woman is abandoned when her daughter vacates a besieged city, and her radio becomes her portal to a secret world. A group of dissidents debate the best use of a table. A mother searches for her missing daughter. A teenager dyes her hair mermaid-blue in a town where the expression of alternative identities is forbidden
