“Forty tons of muscle, fat, and bone, launched like a rocket. A Breach. No one’s entirely sure of why they do it. I might be tempted to say it’s nothing if not joy.”

In the final moments of his extraordinary life, east coast whale researcher Jon Lien tried desperately to tell his wife something, which she struggled to understand.

Between Breaths floats through the inspiring career of the man who freed more than 500 whales from fishing nets. From his unexpected first encounter with a whale, Lien worked to earn the trust of the injured giants, as well as the fishermen whose nets accidentally entrapped them.

Featuring an evocative live score by Newfoundland’s Juno-nominated The Once, this moving work by renowned playwright Robert Chafe (Tempting Providence) examines what it means to find your passion and how to let it go.
