FROM Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, or The Whale
A BATHROOM IN WHARTON HEIGHTS
FRINGEARTS FESTIVAL 2013
“For there is no folly of the beasts of the earth which is not infinitely outdone by the madness of men.”
How do we cope with loss? What prevents us from escaping from life? Robert, recently divorced, loses his job and retreats to his bathtub. Disillusioned and overwhelmed by his troubles, he picks up Herman Melville’s novel and begins a journey. Set in a bathtub in a bathroom, Bathtub Moby-Dick recreates Melville’s characters’ experiences aboard the ship.
