By John Hewer
Based on the novel ‘Moby-Dick’ by Herman Melville
Directed by Bruce Knight

Herman Melville’s classic tale of revenge and retribution is retold in this inventive, comic retelling on the high seas from the company behind ‘Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show’ and ‘Dracula! One Bloody Fang After Another’.

Nantucket, 1841. Ishmael signs on to the Pequod, and witnesses the perils of nature, obsession, punning and physical comedy, as Captain Ahab conducts a reckless pursuit of the savage white whale, Moby Dick.

All plot will be lampooned. All jokes will be harpooned.
