Spring Street International School presents: 

The Passage by Robert Lawson

Directed by Krista Strutz 

This uniquely crafted reworking of Moby Dick is more a poetic fantasia than literal adaptation of the familiar characters and themes from the classic work. With an array of songs, contemporary humor, and the weaving of various myths, a group of whalers set off on an epic hunt. But once on the water, the obsessed Captain Ahab steers them on an entirely different course. In this tale of blind devotion and sacrifice, where will the new path lead this loyal crew?

In the On Book! series, island directors gather actors and friends to read new, classic, and prize-winning plays.
