One actor. One musician. One white whale. One heck of a show.
“For there is no folly of the beast of the earth which is not infinitely outdone by the madness of men,” Herman Melville wrote in Moby-Dick. Compressing the novel’s details, characters and gigantic themes into one riveting night of theater, veteran Irish actor Conor Lovett reels us into the harsh world of 19th-century whale hunting. In this battle with nature, the humans are determined to win—but at what cost?. This engrossing, one-man refresh of Melville’s 1851 novel is backed by 10-string fiddler Caoimhin O'Raghallaigh (of The Gloaming). An American literary anchor splashes on stage.
