Samuel D. Hunter’s critically acclaimed drama The Whale makes its highly anticipated Victorian premiere at the Alex Theatre this June.

The Whale tells the story of a man’s last chance at redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places. It has achieved significant international acclaim including winning the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Play, the Sky Cooper New American Play Prize and its cinematic adaptation garnered two Oscars amongst its overwhelming volume of nominations.

The Whale boasts a captivating cast line-up, led by Adam Lyon (King Kong, Moulin Rouge! The Musical) as Charlie and supported by Melanie Gleeson (When the Rain Stops Falling) as Liz, Sebastian Li (New Gold Mountain – SBS) as Elder Thomas, Tanya Schneider (Harrow – ABC) as Mary and Skye Fellman in her professional debut as Elle.

Melbourne Shakespeare Company’s Artistic Director Jennifer Sarah Dean returns to direct the production following a three year hiatus whilst working on the National Tour of Moulin Rouge! The Musical and most recently on The Almighty Sometimes for Melbourne Theatre Company.
