By Herman Melville
Adapted for the stage by John Godber and Nick Lane

DSL graduating actors perform this exhilarating play for its first London run.

A reimagining of the classic maritime tale – John Godber and Nick Lane tackle the enduring story of the quest to capture the mighty whale, Moby Dick.

  • About
  • Cast

John Godber and Nick Lane’s stage adaptation of the classic 19th century American literary masterpiece, Moby Dick, throws you onto the deck with Captain Ahab and his crew, as his obsessive pursuit of the great white whale threatens disaster to all. 

Told by a group of London’s millennials, who delve into the fables of the docks, we are taken on a rollicking ride across the seas, as they recreate the legendary encounter between Ahab and Moby Dick, the broad white shadow that rises from the deep. 

At its heart this is a cautionary tale for our times, detailing humanity’s relentless desire for mastery over nature and the hubris that makes us, like Ahab, indifferent to the warnings of those who see where it will lead.
