About this show

Winner of the 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Best Play, THE WHALE tells the story of Charlie, a morbidly obese man hiding away in his Northern Idaho apartment, quietly eating himself to death in the wake of a personal tragedy. With his health quickly failing, Charlie makes one last desperate attempt to connect by reaching out to his estranged daughter Ellie, a sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen whom he has not seen in 15 years.

Featuring: John Kuntz; Josephine Elwood; Maureen Keiller, Georgia Lyman; and Ryan O'Connor
