Foolish Fishgirls and the Pearl – November 2018
A tale of mermaids and mochas, lost love and lost treasure, by Barbara Pease Weber. Foolish Fishgirls and the Pearl was directed by Martyn Buck and performed by the Attic Players during November 2018.
Striking a perfect balance between comedy and romance, this fun, nautical play brought fabulous mermaids, seafood chowder and snow to Newcastle Emlyn!
“The play is set in Sea Hags, a seaside B&B and Café run by two sisters, Oceana and Coral. Alas, times are hard and the B&B has seen better days. It is a cold, miserable day in early January when the play takes place and the weather forecast is for a major storm to hit, bringing with it snow and high winds. ‘What a way to start the New Year’ quips Coral, ‘Flat broke and snowbound’.”
To accompany the play, the audience were invited to enjoy an immersive experience, with mince pies and mulled wine served by members of the Sea Hags café.
