A man floats on the open ocean, clinging to his best friend - an ever-shrinking bit of iceberg. He gazes below the surface of the water and thinks he sees ... mermaids performing Ibsen's Lady from the Sea? Elsewhere, a salty sea captain shuttles back and forth from the miles-wide vortex in the North Central Pacific known as the Garbage Patch, delivering messages in bottles and smuggling the impossible. Elsewhere still, a marooned sea creature rants and a strange disease is spreading. All will collide in a mythic place called Florida.

Inspired by the Weeki Wachee Springs Mermaid Park - one of the nation's oldest roadside attractions (and smallest cities) - A Thousand Thousand Slimy Things is a floating fantasia, staged on board a docked barge in Brooklyn's historic Red Hook district.
