From the original text of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, this play conjures a funny, thoughtful and harrowing tale of one man’s drive to see the world.

Ishmael tells the tale of a restless schoolteacher still haunted by the incredible and tragic adventure of his youth. A shape-shifting actor and three bluegrass musicians conjure a funny, thoughtful, harrowing play about one man’s drive to see the world and another man’s insatiable quest to destroy it.

WHENEVER IT IS A DAMP, DRIZZLY NOVEMBER IN MY SOUL; WHENEVER I FIND MYSELF BRINGING UP THE REAR OF EVERY FUNERAL I MEET; AND ESPECIALLY WHENEVER IT REQUIRES A STRONG MORAL PRINCIPLE TO PREVENT ME FROM DELIBERATELY STEPPING INTO THE STREET, AND METHODICALLY KNOCKING PEOPLE'S HATS OFF — THEN, I ACCOUNT IT HIGH TIME TO GET TO SEA AS SOON AS I CAN.

Fee: $20 adults/students $10
