A Whale's Tale

A beached whale, a confused navigator, a ridiculous doctor... whatever could be the matter? A highly interactive spectacle full of slapstick, clowning and a nine-metre whale puppet that can swallow you whole! Watch out, you could be the whale’s next snack... or become the hero of the story and live to tell the tale! An environmental story to warm the heart and inspire you to play your part in caring for our planet and the animals. 

Created and presented by Born in A Taxi, Co-commissioned by Arts Centre Melbourne and Windmill Theatre.

Duration: 45 minutes
Venue: Hackett Hall*
