MOBY DICK
A new adaptation based on the book by Herman Melville

A FAST AND VIBRANT REIMAGINING OF MELVILLE’S CLASSIC
Featuring sea shanties played live on stage

“There she blows!”

October,1839. The Pequod is due to sail out of Nantucket and her skipper, one Captain Ahab, is in need of a crew. Seeking fortune and adventure, a humble schoolmaster named Ishmael ships aboard, joining a company charged with one task: to wreak revenge on the white whale that lost Ahab his leg – the infamous Moby-Dick. Ahab’s single-minded pursuit ends up consuming Ishmael, the crew and the Pequod itself.

The spirit and atmosphere of Herman Melville’s masterpiece – romantic, ambiguous, and rich with allegory – is gloriously captured on stage by the award-winning ensemble Simple8. Using some planks of wood, tattered sheets and an old accordion, the hunt for the most famous whale on earth is ingeniously brought to life.

Presented by Simple8, in association with Royal & Derngate, Northampton.
