Gosh! Surprisingly dry!

Newley has woken up inside of a whale and missed their dentist appointment.

Come on a voyage inside the body of the largest mammal on Earth where four whale-bound locals are living a humble existence in the main chamber. Take a tour to see the lilies in the duodenum, pour yourself a stiff whiskey, and settle down with a vintage edition of Dolly magazine. You could be here for some time. And Newley’s teeth are still hurting.

The theatrical debut from celebrated indie writer Vincent Konrad, Life in the Whale is an absurd and sensuous play which captures the sardonic whimsy that defines Konrad’s acclaimed comics and prose. If Waiting for Godot was a romantic comedy and also set inside a whale.

Most surreal of all, you can book tickets for a show in December that has nothing to do with Christmas.
