Description

The extraordinary story of Captain Ahab's obsessive vengeance against the mighty leviathan, the great white whale who rid him of his leg. Will Ahab's violent and blasphemous mission cost him and the crew of the Pequod everything? Through a new contemporary and strikingly physical interpretation, an all-male cast of young performers will explore the visceral internal and external submarine voyage into the philosophical heart of Herman Melville’s great American novel through the eyes of Ishmael, its one sole survivor.

Congrats to the director! A fairly complex and deep performance for such a large troop of young actors. Well done to all!

This show was fantastic. Especially the young fellow with the Irish accent stood out alongside the preacher man, both emotive and brought the play to life. The play looked as though a lot of hard work and effort went into it and was definitely the highlight of my fringe. Slick, polished and full of life, all together the play was very good and highly recommend to anyone visiting the fringe. Thanks for reading .

Went to see this show after watching a sister show, Voices of Lions, on Sunday. It was well worth the effort adding it to the schedule. Tonight I sailed the seas and was totally exhausted by the experience. They are only here this week so hurry if you are not going to miss out.

What a wonderful (and unexpected) treat.
Happened on this show by chance but WHAT AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE.
High energy performance from an athletic, troupe of teenagers who gave a wonderfully powerful and fresh team performance of the traditional Moby Dick tale.
One of the most impressive shows I have seen this year. Captivating, Go see it. 6.25pm Royal Mile.

A great show it was performed by a group of teenage boys.
The performance was so professional and the acting was excellant.
It was so good we went to two nights running.
Highly recommend it to anyone as a must see.
It's on for an hour and it was captivating.
