or, The Whale
As you take in the Manhattan skyline from the edge of the city, on the cusp of the sea- Ishmael invites us to toss off this life and go see "the watery part of the world". Awhaling he goes and so do we, unwittingly into the depths of humanity. An ensemble of eight actors embody the beloved characters of Melville's classic and take us on the epic journey that is said to carry the DNA of America in it. But with the "ungodly, god-like" Captain Ahab at the helm- who will live to tell of it?

Join us for four performances aboard the Lehigh Valley Barge #79 docked in Brooklyn's historic Red Hook harbor and home to the Waterfront Museum.

Threadbare Theatre Workshop illuminates epics in a simple way through the magic of resourceful storytelling; laying bare our humanity so we may thread more empathy into existence. Our inaugural season celebrates bold reimaginings of ancient myth- beginning with OR, THE WHALE on the Brooklyn waterfront this October.

Adapted & Directed by Kate Russell. Featuring *Paul Terzenbach, C Bain, Steven Hajar, Aniela Gonzalez, Andrew Langton, Nicholas Lazzaro, Jake Choi & *Keona Welch. Production Stage Manager: Kacey Gritters. Costume Design: James Veloria. Lighting Design: David Sexton.


~Once you board you cannot exit until intermission and once again when the play is finished.

~There will be NO LATE SEATING. Please leave ample time to travel to Red Hook, Brooklyn and navigate the waterfront's parking and transportation.

~Suitable for ages 13 and older.
