FOR FEET’S SAKE: THE WILD TALE OF THE LITTLE MERMAID

In this adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, Thessaly is desperate to escape her life under the sea where she's ignored for one on land. After getting a taste of the surface and a chance meeting with the Machiavellian prince, Thessaly makes a deal with the Sea Witch: her tongue in exchange for a chance to walk upon the land. When the Prince doesn't fall in love with Thessaly, she has to make the choice between killing the Prince or turning into sea foam. Thessaly spares his life and forever transverses the cusp of sea and land as the foam riding upon the waves. Available here at Playscripts, Inc.
