What people are saying!

The play has charmed audiences worldwide, and received countless five-star reviews:

“Ingenious and beguiling…this underwater micro-epic has as big a heart as its unlikely hero, and offers a whale of a time in a miniature format.” ~The Guardian

“absorbing, touching and uplifting.” ~The Australian

…an endearing Australian solo show … akin to a theatrical Wall-E,  ~New York Times

“I highly doubt any $40 million Broadway spectacles could pack such an emotional wallop into two- and-a-half hours as Mr. Watts does into 45 minutes.”
