Little Mermaid


Co-devised by Pins & Needles and Bea Roberts
Written by Bea Roberts
Co-directed by Cameron Carver and Emma Earle
Designed by Zoë Squire

Thousands of leagues deep beneath the sea, a shipwrecked 1950s cruise liner is the grand palace where five little mermaids live - but don’t imagine this is going to be a pink and frilly princess story…

Unlike her sisters who are happy with a life of dances, duty and dignitaries, Morgan is sick of swimming in sync. Our heroine is a scruffy mermaid with an enquiring mind, a brave spirit and a niggling sense that she doesn’t fit in. From family feuds and exile to secret underwater nightclubs, and holiday romance, this is one mermaid’s journey from the murkiest depths of the ocean to fulfi l her dreams.

Thrillingly magical, breathtakingly visual, hilarious and mischievous, Little Mermaid promises an amazing family adventure, all set to a shimmering soundtrack of classic 80s pop.

Bea Roberts won the inaugural Theatre503 Playwriting award for And Then Come the Nightjars and in 2015 she won the J.B. Priestley Award from the Royal Literary Fund. She is currently writer on attachment to the National Theatre Studio.

Grab your Ray Bans, tuck your tail in and join the party!
