Meow Meow’s Little Mermaid / is a decidedly un-Disney cabaret – sexy spectacle drips into a bittersweet take on what constitutes a ‘happy ending’. Join post-postmodern diva Meow Meow as she raucously subverts Hans Christian Andersen’s mermaid tale of teen self-sacrifice, salvation and seduction.

A world of old sea shanties and hymns from the Titanic will give way to a glittering array of contemporary originals, as she sails to a land of altered hearts, minds and body parts.

In part two of the ‘little’ trilogy that began with Meow Meow’s Little Match Girl in 2011,
 the cat is back, and she’s not afraid to get in the water! Forget the fairy tale you thought you knew, this rollicking affair / is a fairy tale gone rogue.

January 28 – February 14
Malthouse Theatre
