For Felix Brown, a bookish dreamer growing up during World War II, a life on the sea was the greatest adventure he could hope for. But will he feel differently after he has his heart broken by a mermaid, chats with sea monsters, and fights Nazi spies? Felix boards The Diligence, a dilapidated old galleon, about to embark on an illegal, high-stakes cod-fishing expedition, under the command of the terrifying Captain Chapman. Battling storms, the ragtag crew nobly risk their lives for love and cod while Felix battles the ecstatic wonder and heart-breaking disappointment of growing up and finding one's place in the world. Funny and sincere, this is the greatest play about fishermen in the 1940's you'll ever find.
