Partnering with Peterborough performance company Fleshy Thud, and A Certain Place: The Bernie Martin Festival, Public Energy brings back Myrmidon, a theatrical-poetical gem of a performance, written by the late Bernie Martin.

Myrmidon is the story of one woman's magical, mystical, and mettlesome journey down a river, through a river, within a river. Written by multidisciplinary local artist Bernie Martin just before his death, this one-act play was originally presented at Peterborough's Union Theatre in 1995 by Writers Workshop Theatre. Based in part on the Grimm fairytale “The Magic Flounder,” Myrmidon depicts the struggle to live with integrity in a world where one is doomed to fail. “Mind the water…your feet.” A hit at Public Energy's Emergency #21 Festival in 2015, this one-act play is realized by a veteran group of Peterborough theatre artists.


More About Myrmidon:
In Myrmidon Kate Story performs the central role: a fisherman who rows a dory on an endless river. She shares her trials and tribulations with a fiddler who accompanies her along the way, performed by musical talent Curtis Driedger, and a magical fish who provides her with worldly advice. Directed by Ryan Kerr with costume design by Martha Cockshutt, this seasoned group of artists craft a powerful, eye-catching experience in the unique setting of The Theatre On King. Buy your tickets well in advance to guarantee a seat in Peterborough’s most intimate professional theatre.
