Critically acclaimed Hyphen Theatre Company come to Gerry’s Studio with their Edinburgh Fringe smash show about love, loss and The Little Mermaid.

In this highly-energetic, pop- fuelled, heart-on-the-sleeve account, Woodley playfully explores the peaks and troughs of wanting it all in the modern world. After a critically acclaimed run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival this is the shows London Premier.
