Cole, an old sea captain, lives on a ship with his daughter and her immigrant husband. The trio prepares for a deluge, while Cole meets Daphne, a mermaid who seduces and tempts him. As tensions rise with the rolling tides, Cole must make a difficult choice: take a leap into the unknown, or stay on the safe side. This is a story about connection and separation, about tolerance and the decision to cut ties.
I produced this radio play and also play Daphne, a mermaid.
This is the second of several plays by Oxford playwrights that I am producing for the radio. Check out this tag for more.
