The Mermaid And The Cow (Lindsey Cole)

By | Published on Monday 15 August 2022

Lindsey Cole tells us the true story of how, whilst swimming the length of the Thames in order to raise awareness of plastic pollution in our rivers and seas, she encountered a cow in distress and brought about its rescue. She has since turned the story into an illustrated children’s book. The show is essentially a reading of that, but with a sufficiency of props through which the majority of the children in the audience (and perhaps an unsuspecting adult or two) can get themselves on the stage to act out the tale. A warm, gentle, fun start to your day, with a clear environmental message that the youngest Fringe visitors can readily absorb.
