A mermaid exhibition. A strange lake in the middle of West Texas. Ice cream in multiple flavors. MouthRadio presents Crave Blue, a new play by Sarah Loucks, directed by Ann Marie Dorr. Part roadside attraction, part dark comedy, Crave Blue follows a group of West Texas women who dress up as mermaids to pay the bills. Conspiracy and desire collide when a man claims to see a real life mermaid in the lake. As tourists pollute the town, three minimum-wage mermaids must risk everything to uncover the secrets within the lake, and the secrets within each other.
Inspired by Balmorhea, TX, a town whose waterways are threatened by oil companies, Crave Blue is a surreal and gritty look at environmentalism and the feminine mystique in the heart of West TX.
Crave Blue received developments at The VORTEX (2016) and Porterspace in NYC (2017).
Sarah produces her plays and other nonsense under the name MouthRadio with collaborators from Austin, TX and beyond. MouthRadio creates weird, upsetting, joyful live performance with a focus on experimentation and underrepresented voices.
