Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if you are ready to be transfixed by a masterful performance and design. Chris Roe absolutely kills it with seven distinct and specific voices.

Don't see it if You have no patience for a solo performance, even if it is elevated. The story was not pitch-perfect, but it was always propelled with force

"This show is aesthetically stunning…The story of ‘Whales & Souls’ is undeniably complex, and the detailed writing which lends the play its fairy tale feeling often leads to some confusion...Roe manages to keep the audience with him throughout the entire piece…His performance is energetic and enchanting…In the end, 'Whales & Souls' might be stretching itself a bit thin for the format of a Fringe show, but it is still a beautiful and entertaining production with a fantastic actor at its helm."
