Synopsis

Short Reviews

The show’s most striking moments come when, amid all the sound and fury, the performers simply exist onstage in eloquent silence, mermaids in their element.
The Age - Cameron Woodhead
This is definitely a theatre show – that is, it has the immediacy, intimacy, and allusive suggestion of live performance; it couldn’t be done on film or television. See it, please, for the sheer energy and fun – and take the kids
Stage Whispers - Michael Brindley
