‘it’s pure life force fills the screen’ – Kris Hallet, Life as Theatre
A hole in the Universe. Dead Whales. And an experienced drug dealer. Great.
Marie’s morning routine is going to the beach and smoking a pack of cigarettes. But today is different. 62 Sperm Whales have beached and that’s not all.
As the world’s press and biologists from the Natural History Museum descend upon her small town, the arrival of strangers dredges old conversations and histories to the surface. One arrival in particular turns Marie’s world inside out. And she’s running out of cigarettes.
Harnessing the acting and technical talent of Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, this unique partnership saw this new play by Skot Wilson streamed in collaboration with Bristol Old Vic At Home and Bristol Arts Channel, between 20 & 27 Jun 2020.
