Based on the novel Moby Dick by Herman Melville.

Renowned for their celebrated, hilarious Beckett prose productions, Gare St. Lazare Players Ireland take on one of the greatest novels ever written: Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Performed by Conor Lovett (Best Actor at 2010 Irish Times Theatre Awards) with musical accompaniment by Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh, this gripping solo performance follows Captain Ahab on his journey of revenge in pursuit of the titular white whale. Told from the perspective of Ishmael—who signs up on Ahab’s ship, The Pequod—this is an adventure story of biblical proportions. The Irish Examiner raves, “Moby Dick is a must-see. Lovett holds us spellbound as he captures the humor as well as the wisdom of Melville.”

BWW Review: MOBY DICK at Lookingglass Theatre Company
by Rachel Weinberg - Jun 22, 2017

Following a successful 2015 run, that great white whale Moby Dick has returned to Lookingglass in a highly physical, inventive, and visually compelling production that's fully in keeping with the company's aesthetic. David Catlin's adaptation of Herman Meville's sprawling novel surrounds audiences in the universe of those whalers on board the Pequod in search of that elusive creature. With Courtney O'Neill's artful and hand-crafted set design, the stage and audience reside in a whale 'skeleton,' which cleverly also becomes the structure of the ship. As is common with Lookingglass productions, Moby Dick also makes use of some talented, athletic performers who take on stunning acrobatic feats (choreography by The Actors Gymnasium's Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi). But like any voyage, Catlin's script has a number of slower, narration-heavy moments that lack much action. Moby Dick vacillates between moments of captivating artistry combined with heightened physicality and lengthy stretches of pure narration. (more...)
