Mermaid

Jun 15, 2023

Production Photography: Harry Elletson


A powerful, queer coming of age tale set in the rural north. When David’s estranged mother dies suddenly, they are forced home to confront their past. As David fumbles through the initial grieving process accompanied by an unenthused undertaker, childhood memories invade David’s thoughts. This reflection on the past brings new focus to the queer adult life they lead.

Join David on a witty, tender, heartfelt journey to queer adulthood. A new solo play about regaining your spark and moving on from the past. Mermaid is the story of joy, naivety, and the magic of a queer childhood that encourages us all to seek out that same power and euphoria today.

Mermaid combines clever comedy packed into a tender and heartfelt story. Join David on a journey to rediscovering their queer childhood joy and making peace with the changes in their life.
