A Whaler's Tale

Here's a little Wednesday treat for you all. Have a listen to one of the traditional sea shanties featured in Moby Dick, as sung by the cast.

sea shanties

It's the start of the third week of Moby-Dick, and here are two more sea shanties sung by our cast for your edification and enjoyment. A Whaler's Tale and Will Your Anchor Hold are both original whaling shanties from the period Moby-Dick was written, and are both, we think, beautiful songs. Enjoy!

Last week we had the perenially excellent Idil Sukan in to take shots of Moby Dick. You can see the results here or head to the gallery. Press night tonight and pay what you can as well! Get down early to avoid disappointment.

Shanties Ahoy

It’s tech time, nerves are racing and Seb is beginning to shout “do it again” with a vigour last seen in Attila the Hun… but there is a feeling that things are slowly beginning to come together.

goodbye Caligari, hello Moby-Dick

On Saturday night we bade a sad farewell to the The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. It was a cracking five weeks, and we’re delighted with how it went. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has worked on it, and to all of you who came to see it. Up until now we’ve been rehearsing Moby-Dick in the day and performing Caligari by night.
