"One girl, against the happiness of the whole village. Can you not see it has to be done?"
 
"Lovingly designed by Frankie Bradshaw.... It's gorgeous to look at and incredibly atmospheric: a jetty surrounded by shale and shell. You can almost feel the sea-spray on your face and taste the salt on the air. " The Stage
 
"Matt Grinter won the 2016 Papatango New Writing Prize for Orca, and it's not hard to see why. Aided by Frankie Bradshaw's wonderful set of distressed wood, moss and pebbles, he creates an isolated world in which wholly credible people are placed in terrible dilemmas... a fine, subtle and important piece of theatre." ***** Broadway World 
"Frankie Bradshaw’s beautifully barnacled design... – this is the kind of production that you leave with salt on your tongue and sand inevitably in your shoes." **** Exeunt Magazine
