Join fledgling North East theatre company Peach Plant for a Whale of a Time at Newcastle’s Alphabetti Theatre from Tuesday 17th May-Saturday 4th June.

Familiar faces and fans of Alphabetti, North East actors Lucy Curry and Carl Wylie are a talented team who earlier this year excitedly announced an Arts Council funding award to co-produce their venture with this all-inclusive venue.

Peach Plant aim to tell ordinary stories in extraordinary ways, so like his predecessors Jonah and Pinocchio, 50-year-old Albert has spent half his life inside a whale’s belly before being joined by a much younger Robbie. Although an unlikely pairing, their connection develops as the play takes an insightful look at what it is like to be a man living in different generations.

Knowing nothing of the modern world, including Google and vegan sausage rolls, Albert desperately misses his wife and longs to escape. But the only route is via the whale’s blowhole. Is Robbie Albert’s way out? And more importantly why are they both inside a whale’s belly?

All will be revealed at Alphabetti’s world premiere, that not only imaginatively explores friendship but details how one person can change the rest of your life.

Whale of a Time is at Alphabetti, Theatre in Newcastle from Tuesday 17th May-Saturday 4th June.
