Orca by Matt Grinter

‘Orca’ by Matt Grinter is a poignant, haunting play that asks what lengths we would go to ignore the unthinkable, and how can we fight what nobody is willing to see?

About Orca by Matt Grinter

Midsummer. The village must choose a new Daughter to sail with the fishing boats and bless the waters, keeping the threat of the orcas that roam the sea at bay for another year.

Fan hopes with all her heart to be the one chosen, but her older sister Maggie is adamant she must never, never, go with the boats. Because something happened to Maggie out there. Because no one will admit it. Because sometimes the most beautiful places harbour the darkest secrets.

Winner of the 2016 Papatango New Writing Prize, ‘Orca’ by Matt Grinter is a poignant, haunting play that asks what lengths we would go to ignore the unthinkable, and how can we fight what nobody is willing to see?

Note: Contains reference to sexual assault and personal injury.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Orca by Matt Grinter are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
