Selkie is content with her life as a fisherman's wife and mother of two growing children in an isolated islands of Orkney, but the funeral of a drowned boy brings back memories of her former life as a seal, or selkie, in the ocean before she fell in love with her fisherman. With the revelation that her husband has been keeping things from her, Selkie is faced with the difficult choice to remain where she is or choose who she once was. This adaptation of the scottish myth "The Seal Wife", examines the struggle of every woman as she reconciles who she once was and who she is now. This play was first performed by the Starlight Theatre Company and is written for High School Performers.
