Marooned out at sea
and the greedy moon is fat
Fed by the tide
to show far and wide
that I have grown.
The fantasy world of fairytale meets the dramatic yearnings of 1960s girl band music and the intense depths of gay shame in Merboy, a poetic and queer retelling of The Little Mermaid.
Using verse, storytelling and lip-synching, Merboy tells the story of a sexual awakening of ar mixed-heritage queer boy navigating school homophobia and the brutal complexities of the gay scene.
A musical chorus of drag sisters supports this fun romp into the true meaning behind Hans Christian Andersons fairytale.
