MERBOY

PRESENTED BY Campfire Theatre
A poetic, queer retelling of The Little Mermaid.

“Marooned out at sea
and the greedy moon is fat
Fed by the tide
to show far and wide
That I have grown.”  

The fantasy world of fairytale meets the dramatic yearnings of 1960s girl band music and the intense depths of gay shame in Merboy, a poetic and queer retelling of The Little Mermaid.  

Using verse, storytelling and lip-synching, Merboy tells the story of a sexual awakening of mixed heritage queer boy navigating school homophobia and the brutal complexities of gay scene.  

A musical chorus of drag sisters supports this fun romp into the true meaning behind Hans Christian Anderson’s fairytale.
