(Gene Frankel Theatre 2010)


Written by Jessica Fleitman

Directed by Kara-Lynn Vaeni


In The Average-Sized Mermaid, kindergarten teacher Miriam Moselle loses it one morning in front of her class the day after she’s dumped by her two-timing fiancé. After possibly traumatizing the six-year-olds indefinitely with a tirade about male chauvinism in “The Little Mermaid,” Miriam inexplicably turns into a mermaid herself. When her unusual situation begins to attract media attention, Miriam decides to use her newfound fame to get back at her ex, but soon discovers that there are bigger fish to fry. Can she stretch her 15 minutes long enough to address the deep questions in life? Will she find her voice, will she find herself, and will she ever fall in love again?
