“Orcas carry their fucking stillborn around for days. No one ever did that for me.”

Icebreaker follows the collision of two strangers - a raging mother and a reclusive teenager - on-board an Antarctic icebreaker bound for the last glacier in existence.

Neither are sure what to do with their grief in this new and nonsensical world of last-chance tourism and unflinching optimism. The ice is making it very clear they shouldn't be here. But what are you supposed to do when all you've inherited is whale song and a boiling ocean?

Icebreaker is a play about hope in a dangerously uncertain future.

Icebreaker is an ongoing work in development. 

In July 2018 Christian will begin a development on the play in partnership with The Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowship program.
