Shuler Hensley to star in UK premiere of Samuel D. Hunter’s ‘The Whale’ at the Ustinov Studio

Theatre Royal Bath has today announced that Tony and Olivier Award winner Shuler Hensley will reprise his acclaimed performance as Charlie in the anticipated UK premiere of Samuel D. Hunter’s The Whale at the Ustinov Studio this spring.

Directed by the Ustinov Studio’s Artistic Director Laurence Boswell, the play is a fiercely funny tale of a father’s final chance at salvation, and of finding hope and beauty in the most unexpected places.

The production will run from 26 April to 2 June, with an opening night set for 3 May, 2018.

In a small town on the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho, lives Charlie, a reclusive online writing instructor who weighs six hundred pounds and spends his life marooned in his lounge on the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho.

Aware that he is slowly eating himself to death, he tries to reconnect with his sharp-tongued daughter as a conveyor belt of visitors – welcome and otherwise – parade through his living room, but can any of them help him to see a future?
