KidsFest 2017 Why The Whales Came
Why the Whales Came
By Michael Morpurgo

“Danyah Miller is a storytelling phenomenon. She is bringing maybe my very favourite book 'Why the Whales Came' to audiences everywhere. I shan't miss it. Don't you miss it either. It will be a theatrical tour de force, that's for sure.” Michael Morpurgo

Multi-award-winning performer and storyteller Danyah Miller vividly brings to life another enchanting tale by Michael Morpurgo.

Created by the same team who brought you 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.
