Seal Boy – Riverside Studios

21 May - 1 June

Back by popular demand, Meg has given birth to a seal. But what kind? Is he a predator? Prey? And if she doesn’t know, how will she know how to keep him safe? Or others safe from him.

A contemporary, mythic fable about the complexities of parenting an unconventional child, about love, and about growing up.

Note from the Writer:

I am the parent of a seal boy. Seal Boy, my metaphor, my myth, my stand-in for the troubled child, for a child outside the ‘norm’, for the endangered or the dangerous child. Society has euphemisms and even medical classifications, but they’re mostly umbrella terms created to encompass a constellation of symptoms rather than specific, tangible diagnoses. This sends many a parent down the rabbit hole of interventions. This play is one mother’s, one family’s, journey down the rabbit hole.
