Whale

Can you imagine a world where political inaction and industry lobbying has brought the earth to the point of catastrophe? Can you imagine that we let it get that bad? Or is that impossible – just too crazy? Whale is an immersive, participatory new work in which the personal becomes the political. The scientists and politicians can’t save us but there’s no need to worry: we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Monash University is proud to be a part of the world premiere season of Whale, following its 2018 Max Afford Playwrights’ Award win for playwright Fleur Kilpatrick. Commenting on their decision, the judges noted ‘it’s rare to find a piece of theatre that explores climate change with such a compelling mix of playfulness and authority… it is brimming with imagination and ingenuity’. But be prepared – Whale is here to save the world, provided you are ready to make a sacrifice.
