Pond Wife

Pond Wife was a “joyfully ingenious “(The Stage) reimagining of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic fairy tale The Little Mermaid, told through the medium of 90s pop. With storytelling, a bath tub and cheesy pop, performance collaborative Holly&Ted use lo-fi tech and a casual performance style to reinvent a story that is funny & fabulous “with a feminist heart that makes for a very enjoyable hour” (Broadway Baby).
It’s 1997, the Spice Girls are at the top of the charts & one fifteen-year-old mermaid is about to discover music for the very first time…
