Actor Damian Walshe-Howling, known for many onscreen roles including ‘Underbelly’ and ‘Janet King’, is making his debut with the company taking on the role of smart-talking up and comer Ricky Roma.He caught up with OUTin Perth to share all the gossip from the rehearsal room.On the beautiful but dangerous waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, ship delivery man Luke and four friends chart a yacht to its new owner.Along the way, their ship is torn open by sharp rocks and begins to sink, leaving the passengers with a terrifying choice: stay on board with slim hope of rescue, or swim twelve miles to the nearest island… When they enter the water, an unstoppable, relentless Great White immediately follows their trail for a white-knuckle chase that will fill the waters with blood!
