Adapted and directed by Tom Copeland. The intricately narrated story involves a mermaid who comes ashore on the southern coast of England in 1899. Feigning a desire to become part of genteel society, the mermaid’s real design is to seduce Chatteris, a man she saw “some years ago” in “the South Seas—near Tonga,” who has taken her fancy. Couched in the language of fantasy and romance that blends with light-hearted social satire, The Sea Lady explores serious themes of nature, sex, the imagination, and the ideal in an Edwardian world in which moral restraints are loosening.
