Directed by: Linda Haston

On the outskirts of Mormon country, Idaho, a six-hundred pound recluse hides away in his apartment eating himself to death. Desperate to reconnect with his long-estranged daughter, he reaches out to her, only to find a viciously sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, The Whale by Samuel D. Hunter, tells the story of a man’s last chance at redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places.

“…RIVETING. An impassioned and arresting clash of minds and emotions. I was glued to the stage.”
Rex Reed, New York Observer

“There may be no more startling image on a New York stage right now than the one greeting audiences at Playwrights Horizons when the lights go up on The Whale…”
Charles Isherwood, New York Times
