★★★★ 'FINE CHISEL’s fourth Edinburgh outing sees them find their voice with DUMBSTRUCK, a layered consideration of long-range communication that is delivered with a delicate, diligent panache.’ - Matt Trueman, Scotsman
Somewhere in the North Pacific, a lonely scientist hears a whale song like no other...
With a stage full of instruments and a box of chalk, FINE CHISEL's multi award-winning actor-musicians transport you back through one man's past, from the rush of arctic waves to rock n' roll 1960s rebellion. The more we learn about his life, the more we understand his isolation and his need to reach out to this extraordinary whale.
Playful, poignant and packed with foot-stomping live music, DUMBSTRUCK is a story about faith, communication and what it means to make ourselves heard.
★★★★★ 'Let FINE CHISEL plunge you underwater and whisk you back in time and make you tingle with excitement.' - Broadway Baby
