Using Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, as its foundation, this newest Simpich marionette play casts an anchor to the deepest regions of the sea as the aging King Caspar of Covencasp is given a privileged look back to his youth and the underwater world of Leezel, a young mermaid. Here, the true details of his “rescue at sea” transform his aging, failing heart to embrace a greater rescue he had always refused to see or understand.
