On the farthest edge of a wind-battered rock there sits a small fishing town.
Sometimes it feels like the town is on the edge of the world…
Join three shanty-singing fishermen as they weave a fishy tale of musical merfolk, menacing monsters and spectacularly bad town planning.
With live music, puppetry, a rapping octopus and a shifting set full of surprises – this enchanting tale is fun for all the family (5+).
The Boy and the Mermaid is based on an original story by Alex Kanefsky and features original songs from Darren Clark (The Scarecrow's Wedding, The Little Gardener) fused with traditional sea shanties – for all to sing along!
