FoF : Plays on Trapeze
 

Moby-Dick

by
Herman Melville
Adapted for the stage by 
Steven Cole Hughes

Currently in development, Fight or Flight's Moby-Dick is an intensely physical, 2-hour, 9-actor telling of the classic story, filled with nautical-aerial activity, rich poetic language, humor, and live-sung sea shanties.  Highly theatrical, we will use 19th century technology to tell this distinctly modern story.  We will not rely on projections and fancy electronics... just wood and ropes and cloth and sweat (with contemporary lighting and sound design, we're not crazy.) 

Weʼve had 4 public presentations of the script (in three different states!) each focusing on different aspects of the production:
