What's Happening in September

This Saturday! September 22 @ 7 pm

Ishmael, featuring Jack Weston, Mary Ficke's husband
Drawn from Herman Melville’s classic novel, Moby Dick, Ishmael tells the tale of a restless schoolteacher still haunted by the incredible and tragic adventure of his youth. A shape-shifting actor and three bluegrass musicians conjure a funny, thoughtful, harrowing play about one man’s drive to see the world and another man’s insatiable quest to destroy it.
