What makes a community tolerate the unthinkable?


The roaming orcas are returning and a new daughter must be chosen to ride out with the boats to protect the village. Fan is desperate to be chosen but her sister knows she must never go. Because something happened to Maggie out there, something that everyone is refusing to admit


Winner of the Papatango New Writing Prize in association with Southwark Playhouse, where it premiered in 2016, Orca explores the way in which a small community moulds and reshapes its inhabitants, with sometimes brutal force.
