From New Bedford, USA to Fremantle, Australia, across the high seas on the whaling ship Catalpa and based on the true story of the daring 1875 rescue of six Irish prisoners, Catalpa is about heroes and visionaries, political intrigue and personal loyalty, with hot romance, bumbling rebels and battles at sea. An epic adventure that challenges the nature of heroism and a celebration of the power of live theatre; lyrical and passionate, satirical and very funny.
