Original story by Michael Morpurgo
Multi award-winning performer and storyteller Danyah Miller vividly brings to life this enchanting tale by Michael Morpurgo.
Created by the same team behind the acclaimed and much-loved production of I Believe in Unicorns, Why The Whales Came is full of fun, mystery and adventure.
Children Gracie and Daniel have been forbidden to go near the mysterious and seemingly dangerous Birdman. But messages and clues intrigue them and, after being lost at sea in the fog and stranded on his tiny island, they begin to unravel the Birdman’s secrets, the villagers’ fears and superstitions and learn why the whales came to the island.
Described by Michael Morpurgo himself as a “storytelling phenomenon”, we can’t wait for Danyah Miller to bring this beautiful story for children to life this summer. Hear more from Danyah in our latest blog Why the Whales Came – Meet the Performer.
