The Whale's Tale


Ever wonder what it's like to be swallowed whole?  Put on your helmet, take a deep breath, and dive inside the jaws of Manilayo, the humpback whale.

A Whale is washed up on a beach and discovered by a child.  How did it get there?

Watch from the shore, or submerge yourself in the underwater playground as the spirit of the Whale - embodied as the Navigator - goes on a journey to find out what is wrong.

Highly interactive, full of riotous slapstick and extremely playful, this is an environmental tale to warm the heart, with reflections about the consequences of our actions.

It has been forecast that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.  'The Whale's Tale' is a rollicking journey for all ages that will leave your kids wanting to make a difference. 
Produced by Born in a Taxi Theatre Company and proudly presented by the Forge Theatre Presents program.
