Chasing the New White Whale reimagines Ahab’s final thrilling Chase in Moby Dick, and in a grand spectacle, will turn the Ellen Stewart Theater into an ancient whaling ship. Featuring a mythical chorus of ghostly whale hunters and modern day commercial fishermen inspired by Ahab's stowaway crew—"Fedallah and the Phantoms"—this exciting new work explores the current National opioid crisis through the unique lens of the commercial fishing industry."
