Moby Dick

Swindon Arts Centre

Thu 6 February

Moby Dick

‘Call me Ishmael.  Now it was some years ago – never mind how long precisely – when, having little or no money, and nothing in particular to interest me on shore, I did take it into my head to go on a whaling voyage…’ 

To celebrate the bicentennial of Herman Melville’s birth, his classic tale of one man’s obsessive hunt for the great white whale is brought to the stage in a stunning solo performance – so real that you’ll swear that you can taste the salt on your lips.

From the team, playwright and award-winning performer behind The Unknown Soldier and Gratiano.

It’s a masterful performance… and a further testament to Ericson’s growing magnificence as a modern playwright and performer. ★★★★★ British Theatre Guide on Gratiano

Ericson is a force to be reckoned with. ★★★★★ Edinburgh Guide on Gratiano


Powered by a magnificent solo performance from Ross Ericson. ★★★★★ Three Weeks on The Unknown Soldier

Presented by Grist to the Mill
Written and Performed by Ross Ericson
Directed by Michelle Yim
