MILAGRO in Portland, OR presents the NNPN Rolling World Premiere of THE MERMAID HOUR by David Valdes Greenwood.
In THE MERMAID HOUR, Pilar and Bird are navigating the challenges of raising their 11-year-old daughter Violet as she asserts her identity as a transgender girl. When Violet makes a YouTube video declaring her love for her gay best friend Jacob, their parents are forced to rise up to the challenge of supporting their children through a tumultuous time. This brutally honest play is both poignant and hilarious. This will be the final production in a Rolling World Premiere supported by National New Play Network.
Rehearsals begin February 12, 2018. Actors rehearse on average 20 hours per week.
Performances run March 22-April 14, 2018. Thursday-Saturday evening and Sunday matinees; possible Wednesday student matinees.
