At the end of the nineteenth century, a New York customs inspector and writer died in relative obscurity. His name was Herman Melville and he would later come to be regarded as a literary giant, equal in stature to Mark Twain, John Steinbeck and Jack London.

Melville published numerous books in his lifetime,​ but is best known for Moby Dick, a story of a young schoolmaster aboard the ill-fated voyage of the Pequod, a Nantucket whaling ship. Join us for a Christmas ‘gam’ to learn about stage adaptations of this classic and timeless tale.
