Moby Dick

Project Description

Newport’s Tin Shed Theatre will be performing Herman Melville’s masterpiece on the gondola of the Newport Transporter Bridge from 3-16 October 2018.

Moby Dick tells the story of Ishmael, a young man desperate to leave land and see the watery part of the world. Meeting with a host of other lost souls, the story quickly becomes about friendship, male mental health and the need for human companionship. However, Ishmael’s journey across the ocean in search of a great white whale soon becomes a voyage of the damned as fate tests his religion, and the captain’s madness tests his resolve.

Experience the highs and lows of this classic tale re-imagined for a 21st century Newport audience, as Tin Shed Theatre Co. retell Moby Dick bravely, and in epic detail, staged on the floating gondola of the Newport Transporter Bridge and performed by local professional and non-professional performers.
