Mermaids are magical. And spurred on by some book titles which flittered across my social media channels thought I’d share the TSL books which mention mermaids.
To start, a mermaid to lure you into Warm and Wet by Philip Philmar
Army of Angels in Sai-Ko by Gabriela Harding
Lucifer’s Child by Gideon Masters
The Dream Speaks Back by Sue Hampton, Leslie Tate and Cy Henty
Family are the Friends you Choose by Marthe Kiley-Worthington
The Ballad of Crookback and Shakespeare by Clive Greenwood and Jason Wing
Ravelled by Sue Hampton
And the Mermaid Theatre, London features in Big Name Hunting by Arnie Wilson
And the books which influenced this post:
The Mermaid of Black Conch by Monique Roffey (thanks to St Ives Bookshop which supports The Green Man and the Raven’s Quest)
The Girl from the Sea by Molly Knox Osterley
Back in January 2019 I had the pleasure of meeting Player Playwrights at The Tavern, their London base. While TSL playwright Melville Lovatt was the catalyst in bringing us together, an outcome of that encounter has been the signing of a number of authors – both for plays and short stories.
So, it is with great pleasure that TSL can showcase the work of this group of playwrights and actors whether or not they’ve been published by TSL.
Take a look and then see who has been published by TSL (and it’s not just drama)
About Philip Philmar
Philip Philmar is an actor, writer, performance poet, and also (as Phil Davis) an artist. He has appeared in several films by Tim Burton: Slugworth in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mr Fogg in Sweeney Todd, and Mr Archer in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Also, the disgusting Cook Giant in Jack the Giant Slayer; as a shape-changing alien in Disney’s John Carter; and numerous other delightfully odd and disparate roles.
