Co-presented with Tobacco Factory Theatres, Darkstuff Productions bring their critically acclaimed re-imagining of Herman Melville’s masterpiece to Brunel’s SS Great Britain for an immersive journey in pursuit of the legendary white whale.
All men live enveloped in whale-lines. All are born with halters round their necks; but it is only when caught in the swift, sudden turn of death, that mortals realize the silent, subtle, ever-present perils of life.
Schoolmaster turned sailor Ishmael joins a whaling ship sailing from Nantucket, New England. The disparate crew are suspicious of both the newcomer and the ‘savage’ harpooner Queequeg. As they journey further into the Pacific, friendships are forged and rivalries formed as the whalers realise their fate is in the hands of Captain Ahab and his reckless hunt to kill Moby Dick.
A unique promenade performance through one of Bristol’s iconic attractions.
