Paper Balloon present this magical and exciting new show for family audiences(6+)
Based on an original story by Alex Kanefsky, and featuring original songs and music from Darren Clark( The little Gardener, The Scarecrow’s Wedding), this new play explores the fate of one little fishing town, exposed to the mercy of sea monsters, mer-creatures and spectacularly bad town planning. Traditional sea shanties combine with new music in a tale told through lyrical storytelling, quirky puppetry and innovative physical theatre.
