Captain Murderer And The Morecambe Mermaid: Captain Mermaid Theatre Company
Created and performed by Lisa Howard (Red Ladder's BIG SOCIETY!) and John Barber, this two-man exploration of addiction, sexual exploitation, immigration and kiss-me-quick seaside cheekiness tells the story of a drunken end-of-the-pier show owner and his star attraction, 'The Morecambe Mermaid'.
He's trying desperately to tell his favourite story, a version of little-known Dickens short story, 'Captain Murderer' about a dastardly captain who marries women before eating them in pies, but it's not going well. His foul-mouthed daughter Tanya is more of a hindrance than a help and he could really do with a drink.
All the mermaid wants is to get back to the sea, but he's got something that she needs. Following their stories as they intertwine across Morecambe, from the beach to the fish monger, a hotel lounge to their washed-up end-of-the-pier show, this new production is a fast-moving parade of puppetry and masks, illusions, projections and original songs.
