The Fisherman's Daughter - Sea-monsters & Pirates

The Fisherman's Daughter - an adventure-packed 50 minute play for all the family to enjoy with an unlikely hero, Harold, a joker of a one-legged seagull who conducts a post show question and answer joke exchange.

Using classical marine literature in an inspiring way; all ages have found this cleverly layered play enthralling.

Ten year old Jess worries about pirates, sea-monsters, and storms awaiting the return of her fisherman father. Then the colourful, Moira arrives with her one legged seagull friend, Harold and they go on a rollicking adventure.

AsOne's Artistic Director, Jane McKell said:

The audiences invited, love making the sounds of the storm, the waves, the wind, and seagulls; for each and everyone there are characters to empathise with. One father said:

'My daughter loved it. Even grumpy grandpas thought it was brill.' It's been a joy hearing families leave the theatre chatting away about what they have seen and enjoyed together.

All in all the play entertains hugely whilst encouraging the family to go away and look at classic maritime literature such as Treasure Island, Peter Pan, The Odyssey, The Mariner's Tale, Moby Dick, The Little Mermaid, Moonfleet and many more.

Music - Joe Butcher Written & Directed - Peter John Cooper Puppet - Polly Beeston

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.
