The Little Mermaid
Whether you first came to The Little Mermaid by way of the original Hans Christian Andersen tale, the classic Disney animated film, or the stage musical adaptation, the story resonates with the same emotional power. Strip the tale of its fantastical elements – mermaids, sea witches and talking crabs – and what’s left is the simple story of a young woman struggling to come into her own.

The Little Mermaid is also a tale of fathers and daughters. Though we do not have fins like our heroine, we do have parental figures who, perhaps at times, we feel have stood in the way of our happiness. Many can also sympathize with the widower King Triton who raises his daughter on his own in the best, and safest, way he can – even if Ariel is not always capable of recognizing that loving intention. The same is true of the relationship between Grimsby and Prince Eric, another strong-willed young person searching for his place in the world. As Ariel and Eric learn to make decisions for themselves, King Triton and Grimsby learn the parental lesson of letting go.
