Adelaide Fringe 2020 Reviews

★★★★ 1/2 "This is a story that sees you. What a powerful and incredible thing." - Adelaide Theatre Guide

★★★★ "It is impossible to resist Andrews’ boundless energy as a storyteller" - The Advertiser

★★★★ "Casey is a talented and energetic story teller/actor as well as a writer of some interesting monologue...What we have to question is life itself, that it is unfair and that sometimes we have an uphill struggle to survive; when thriving is simply beyond us." - The Clothesline

★★★★ "With clever writing and engaging storytelling this is a multi-layered modern fable of intelligence and emotional depth." -Kryztoff Raw

"Wonderful and powerful." - Stage Whispers




A tender, furious, and fragile reimagining of Moby Dick from multi-award winning writer and storyteller Casey Jay Andrews. A suburban fable of bad luck, reckless choices and irrational hope. The times when we leap, where sometimes we soar, and sometimes we drown. The epic infamous whale tale is reinvented in London and follows a young woman on the brink of self-destruction.

By Casey Jay Andrews, creator of

The Archive of Educated Hearts

WINNER Best Theatre Weekly Award, Adelaide Fringe 2019

International Praise for The Wild Unfeeling World

★★★★ Funny, and sad, and deeply human, this stands out for the elegance of its writing and the depth of its emotional journey… It’s a story about seeing the world turn against you and being honest enough to acknowledge that it’s partly your fault. It’s about the danger of seeing the world in black and white, the importance of small acts of kindness, and how sometimes it’s okay to admit that some things are just too big to wrestle with” The Scotsman
