Ishmael, a young man in search of adventure, first mate, Stubb, and Queequeg, the mystical Polynesian harpooner ("he's the son of a cannibal king, they say."), set off aboard the Pequod, a whaling ship piloted by the brooding captain Ahab

As they sail deeper into unknown waters, they discover the real reason for their quest - to hunt and kill Moby Dick, that legendary white whale who long ago devoured the captain's leg

Ahab's dark obsession for the creature soon takes hold of the entire ship, driving them all toward a violent confrontation with the great beast itself

This adaptation is suitable for standard stage production as well as touring, using simple music and sound effects to create stunning theatrical moments
