FELIX & THE DILIGENCE; OR, A PLAY ABOUT FISHERMEN IN THE 1940'S
(written with Daniel Johnsen)
For Felix Brown, a bookish dreamer growing up during World War II, a cod fishing trip was the greatest adventure he could hope for. But will he feel differently after he falls in love with a mermaid, chats with sea monsters, and fights Nazi spies? He and the crew learn about their feelings, and what happened to Amelia Earhart, in this nostalgic fishing comedy.
“There are grand insights into relationships and society, but it’s all done with jokes, music, shadow puppetry and a sea monster or two or three.”
