Okay, so here's what my show is about.
Four years ago, my friend Jean told me, "Hilary, no one is good enough for you". Which sounded a lot like, "Hilary, you are destined to be alone forever". But anyway, this show isn't about me. It's about a whale.
At around the same time, I found out about the 52-Hertz Whale; a hybrid fin/blue whale that emits a mating call at a frequency no other whale can hear. Whales rely on their songs to attract a mate so the theory goes that this whale is swimming around, calling out into an empty void for a mate who will never hear her. Long story short, this whale is basically doomed. That's pretty relatable, I think. But this isn't about me.
Four years after finding out about this whale I am still very much alone. So is the whale. So I've decided to make a musical comedy about it. Come along. Don't make me sing into an empty void alone. Be alone with me. And the whale.
