Drawn from Herman Melville’s classic novel, Moby Dick, Ishmael tells the tale of a
restless schoolteacher still haunted by the incredible and tragic adventure of his youth.
A shape-shifting actor and a multifacited musician conjure a funny, thoughtful,
harrowing play about one man’s drive to see the world and another man’s
insatiable quest to destroy it.
Originating at the 2015 Minnesota Fringe Festival, Ishmael was chosen for development
into a full-length theatre piece at the 2016 Big Sky Conservatory and premiered at the
Warren Miller Performing Arts Center in March of 2017.
Ishmael opened the Jungle Theater’s 2018 season in Minneapolis MN performing 7 shows a week for 3 weeks to sold out audaince.
