CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

Moby Dick archiveRe-live the great story on-board a ship in this classic seafaring story...the sailor's song from the crows nest is heard above; Captain Ahab's 'coffin tap' tread echoes on the decks beneath. The ghosts, the doomed Pequod's crew, rise from the hold. The harpooners recreate the horror of 'the last great hunt' as their voyage takes us deeper into a world of obsession, power and darkness. Music, magical visual image, and a dynamic storytelling style all combine in a ghostly performance within the atmospheric close quarters of the ship's aft deck auditorium. The greatest adventure of all time shall be brought to life, against the backdrop of Hull's fishing heritage. A play within a play, the action will flit between 1950s Hull and 19th Century America. A whistle stop trip through history, a cast of six, will adopt a myriad of roles, plucked straight from the Hull dockside and the heart of Moby Dick.
Performers Lucy Cullingford, Dicken Ashworth, Martin Barass, Joanne Jolley, Sarah Parks, Amy Tomson.
Book by Hermann Melville. Producer Hull Truck. Adapted by Nick Lane. Adapted by John Godber. Director John Godber. Design Pip Leckenby. Lighting Graham Kirk. Choreographer Lucy Cullingford. Costume John Boddy.
