Emerald's father, a fisherman, was lost at sea the night she was born. Now, on the eve of her 25th birthday, Emerald learns of the Day of the Dead Fishermen - a time when the dead awake from their slumber for one day only. Emerald is determined to travel to the mysterious island where the dead walk, even though to do so means certain death. Joined by barista-in-crime Jason and an unlikely boat captain, they face many foes - on land and at sea - in their quest to reunite Emerald with her father.
Hot off last year's Seattle premiere, Emerald and the Love Song of the Dead Fishermen is a modern maritime odyssey combining mythology, music, and poetry with a modern take on those who make their lives from the sea. Directed by co-Artistic Director Liz Neerland, the ensemble cast of nimbus regulars and newcomers create a multi-layered production full of whimsy, sea chanteys, old superstition, mermaids and even a lovelorn lumberjack.
