Why The Whales Came

Bookwriter & Lyricist

Reviews from Theatre Royal Plymouth production, August 2021:

“It is the music that pervades: sea shanties and ear-worming reprises, strident songs of patriotism and war games, and quiet reflection of hollow glory and cruelty and greed. Tremendous.” 

BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

 

“The music and lyrics by Bella Barlow and Nikki Racklin are heartfelt, memorable and varied, featuring ballads, high-energy dance scenes and songs inspired by sea shanties and folk music. The audience was captivated by the storytelling and the music… This is a polished piece of theatre that is screaming out for a future.”
