Abstract:

"An ingenious idea is employed to accommodate the sweep of this classic story on the stage. A Shakespearean company who puts down their rehearsal sides of Lear and curiously take up those of a new play entitled Moby Dick. On the rehearsal stage of platforms, the teasers overhead suddenly become yardarms with sails and a tall ladder becomes a mast. The platforms become the decks of the ship on which the cast sails through the storms and tribulations of the Pequod hunting for Moby Dick." - Publisher's website.
