whale posterV2-04.png

A remarkable new work of theatre and song that explores our age-old need to reach out beyond ourselves, even in the most remote place imaginable. Following four human lives across the lifespan of a whale; the stories of Orisin, Kwire, Unkle and Koastguard intertwine in subtle and abrupt ways, sending echoes long into the future.

By turns epic and intimate, featuring original songs and music, a superb cast that features Noelle Brown, Julie Maguire, John McCarthy and Dominic Moore on the Cork Opera House stage; in collaboration with a brilliant creative
team including composer Fiona Sheil, lighting and set designer Eoin Winning, costume designer Valentina Gambardella and assistant director Katrina Foley.
