The Whitehaven Whale
In May 2022 David was writer in residence for The Whale project, an interactive live theatre installation in Whitehaven Cumbria that gives us a strange real-but-imagined encounter with a beached whale.
The Captain Boomer Collective created The Whale sculpture with Zephyr Wildlife to be a hyperrealistic sculpture that sparks debate about our relationship with the planet, our fellow inhabitants and the earth's resources. The Project is an Eden Arts commission.
During his residency David produced a series of short stories inspired by the whale and people’s interactions with it. These stories will be published as a book by Osmosis press in 2023
