Why The Whales Came

Bookwriter & Lyricist

“It's 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 are heartfelt, memorable and varied, 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.” 
MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW
 

"This is a fine show, and the simple truth of the song Glory Feels Hollow will stay with me for a long time.’
