THE world premiere production of a classic Hans Christian Andersen tale comes to the Oxford Playhouse from Tuesday to Saturday.
Mermaid is the story of how the title character rises to the surface on her 16th birthday, leaving her childhood behind forever when she falls in love with a mortal prince.
She knows she can no longer live under the sea, but must she give up her voice to be loved?
The grown-up re-telling explores the social pressures young women face today. A chorus of local young women aged 14 to 20 will be part of the production.
Tickets start at £11 from 01865 305305 or online at www.oxfordplayhouse.com
