Theatre Royal Plymouth - Wail

Theatre Royal Plymouth - Wail

Following a run at Battersea Arts Centre in 2016, Little Bulb Theatre embarks on a national tour with Wail, coming to Theatre Royal Plymouth Tuesday 28 March – Saturday 1 April. Created through a research residency at Southampton University with the Nuffield Theatre, Wail seeks to discover the answers to the questions; why do whales sing? And why do humans wail?

Returning to their low-fi roots comparable to that of Operation Greenfield, Little Bulb Theatre now share their findings in an aquatic cabaret of songs, science and soundscapes with chances for audiences to win cheap prizes galore! With live songs, comedy moments and a special marine guest, Wail is a haphazard two-hander that’s sure (contents wise at least) to be a whale of a time.

The production features the company’s signature blend of live music and theatre, offering a fun-filled 70 minutes of performance exploring whale song and human song

Tickets are priced at £15 and can be booked online at or by calling the Theatre Royal Plymouth Box Office on 01752 267222. Concessions are available.
