The Whale

June 28 @ 7:30 pm - July 12 @ 7:30 pm AEST

MSC Studio is proud to present the Victorian premiere of The Whale by Samuel D. Hunter and directed by Jennifer Sarah Dean. This iconic play that inspired the Oscar winning movie, is a gripping exploration of isolation, redemption, and human connection.

On the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho, Charlie hides away in his apartment. Desperate to reconnect with his long-estranged daughter, he reaches out to her, only to find a viciously sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, The Whale tells the story of a man’s last chance at redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places.
This strictly limited season runs from 28th June – 14 July 2024.
