PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

A whale of a tale will be presented at Kennesaw State July 1 & 2. The Department of Theatre and Performance Studies presents the Herman Melville classic, “Moby-Dick,” adapted for the stage by Professor and Chair of the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies John Gentile.


The Melville masterpiece was originally published in 1851 and depicts the adventures of Ishmael, a wandering sailor, and his voyage on the whaling ship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael finds himself in quite an encounter when he learns that Captain Ahab intends to hunt down and exact revenge on the massive and ferocious white sperm whale Moby-Dick. “Moby-Dick” explores themes of knowledge, ignorance, fate and the business of whaling in the 19th century. Pequod and “whiteness” are, amongst others, major motifs and symbols in the story, and remain major symbols in KSU’s adapted stage production.
