Ayun Halliday

A cast of ten homeschooled teens take an exploratory deep dive into the realm of The Little Mermaid, from Disney's happy ending to the explicit traumas of Hans Christian Andersen's original. Not that there's any correspondence between the pain of becoming an adult and the pain of having your tongue cut out and boiled...

Music! Puppetry! Water safety! Stage blood! THE MERMAID'S LEGS has something for everyone…provided they can handle an experimental approach and a non-red-haired mermaid who - SPOILER - dies in the end!

(Parental discretion may be advised, even at the supremely weird hour of 6:30 pm. It’s not a kiddie show.)
