The Storm Whale
22 Jan–30 Jan 2022
Based on the books by Benji Davies
Aimed at ages 4 - 8
Noi lives with his Dad and their six cats by the sea. One spring, while his Dad was busy at work, Noi rescued a little whale that washed up on the beach during a storm. There a friendship began that changed their lives forever.
The following winter Noi’s Dad takes one last trip in his fishing boat. Noi is alone once more and longs to see his friend again. He waits and watches, watches and waits… will it take another winter storm to bring them back together again?
Benji Davies’ tender and heart-warming children’s stories of friendship, love and courage are brought to life as one enchanting theatre show.

“An enchanting tale, perfectly adapted with little ones firmly in mind” — Yorkshire Times
The Storm Whale is aimed at ages 4-8, and builds on the simple stories from both the books to create a family show with a wide appeal, exploring friendship, love and loneliness. There is some mild peril when the boy is stuck on the ice, but all ends well.
