Foolish Fish Girls and the Pearl – Summer Show
A Comedy by Barbara Pease Weber| Directed by Shelly Cary
(Show Dates: July 14-15 & 20-22, 2017 at 7:30 pm)
Contrary to folklore, even mermaids can be unlucky in love. When two sirens of the sea forsake their tails for earthly love, they find that mortal men can be both dangerous and deceitful.
How to survive failed romance? They open an oceanfront bed and breakfast, appropriately called Sea Hags, and try to warn young women of all persuasions about the risks of loving men. Then, one night while the bed and breakfast is battered by a fierce winter storm, fate intervenes and second chances arrive in most unlikely form.
