ISHMAEL tells the tale of a restless country schoolteacher who decides a sea voyage could be the change of pace he needs. Blinded by a thirst for adventure, he signs onto a three-year whaling trip with a Captain he’s never met, and quickly finds himself in over his head. Drawing freely from Herman Melville’s classic novel, MOBY DICK, a single actor and three blue grass musicians conjure a funny, thoughtful, harrowing play about one man’s drive to see the world and another man’s insatiable quest to destroy it and the spirit it takes to survive it all. This one man show will be punctuated with bluegrass accompaniment by members of the Minnesota based band Pert Near Sandstone. Tickets available at
