Ishmael, lone survivor of the doomed whaling ship Pequod, falls through a rift in time and space to a future Earth - an Earth of blood-sucking vegetation and a blood-red sun, of barren canyons where once the Pacific Ocean roared. Here too there are whales to hunt - but whales that soar through a dark blue sky....
Presenting a rare stage gem by playwright Rob Foster, author of "Just Lovely," "Mr. Bruce, Do You Swear?" and "26 High Street," guaranteed to knock your funny bone out of joint and kick your brain into gear! HOW TO ASSEMBLE A WHALE Hart and Warner couldn't be any more different than night and day, yet they have two things in common: they're both in a mental ward, and have both "died " and returned after seeing the other side. The facility's Administrator, seeking her own answers to life's questions, has paired the two to share the same living quarters, in the hope of what may be observed and gleaned from their curious and oddball interactions. "How To Assemble A Whale" is a disturbingly poignant comedy of human nature, as enlightening as it is hilarious. SPOTLIGHT THEATER CLASSICS seeks to bring new and regionally known original stageworks to the widest audience possible, in an accessible format to the layperson reader and professional producer alike. We hope you enjoy this volume and make the live performance arts a further focus of your time and support.
