Spymonkey's Moby Dick
Four whalers find themselves trapped in the belly of a whale. As they ponder the irony of their fate, they recount a story of Moby Dick, sparkling with their own fantastical flourishes. The novel's epic examination of good, evil, fate and obsession is lost on them. And then, mysteriously, found on them again. Was their fate ?orca-strated'? Will Ahab's thirst for revenge be unhinged by a bitter middle-aged Pinnochio, the used-to-wannabe? What does a Bavarian cannibal harpoonist eat? Will the cameo appearance by legendary screen actor Awesome Whales scupper everything? And how exactly do you make a whale throw up?
