Peter, a quiet, awkward fisherman, still lives at home with his acerbic and overbearing mother. One fateful night, he brings a seal-woman home from the sea. As Sally grows into life on land, their hopes and secrets catastrophically collide in this funny, moving, and visually striking retelling of a selkie myth. With simple staging and haunting live music, The Harbour unearths an over-fished world filled with impossible desires.

“A masterclass in surreal storytelling.” – East Anglia Daily Press.

“Such revels are the reason we venture forth to the theatre…one quickly relaxes into total confidence in the troupe’s ability to conjure and entertain, which is a rare treat.” – The Prague Post
