"To sail with such a heathen crew that have small touch of human mothers in them! Whelped somewhere by the sharkish sea."
Big book. Big themes. Big whale. Join us for a shanty-laden adaptation of Moby Dick that preserves the vastness of Melville's language and vision. With Live underscore and a live fish, this classic cut of Melville classic American novel focuses our thoughts towards Ahab's obsession with a thrilling poetic poignancy.
