Just a quick hop across the pond. In Brighton, Oxford and London, a show about mermaids and pop music from the 90’s, what’s not to love!?! Holly and Ted have come up with a super fun adaptation of the Little Mermaid. This is fringe theater at it’s best.
According to their website: “It’s 1997 and one 15-year-old mermaid is about to discover pop music for the very first time. Pond Wife is a magical and radical reimagining of Hans Anderson’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ told by Holly&Ted.
With storytelling, cheesy pop and a bath tub, performance collaborative Holly&Ted use lo-fi tech and a casual performance style to reinvent a story that is funny, scientific and magical.”
