The Selkie Wife at Apollo Theatre

October 25 @ 7:30 am - October 29 @ 10:00 pm


Our production will feature live music and will be the UK Premiere of this Canadian play based on the myth of the Selkie: a creature that lives as a seal in the water but can shed their skin to become human on land.

Mary Hew has done just that and lives with her human husband Cal and teenage daughter Brigit. After twenty years on land she is visited by her Selkie ‘sister’ Gen and Gen’s young male companion Dylan. Gen is intent on taking Mary back to the freedom of the ocean, but Dylan begins to realise the meaning of the family life she has embraced. Brigit is mesmerised by this unusual young man, to Cal’s consternation.

And Mary is faced with the choice of her life…..

Our box office will be open for the 7 main season shows from the Saturday before opening night, when tickets can be bought in person or by phone.
