Moby Dick makes a big splash in Leeds Hit mu­si­cal in Leeds

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - STAGE -

MOBY Dick will take to the wa­ters of the Leeds Liver­pool Canal later this year.

The White Whale has been adapted by Leeds-based Slung Low from Her­man Melville’s clas­sic novel. The play will be per­formed on boats and float­ing plat­forms with the au­di­ence watch­ing from the canal­side.

This dark tale of ad­ven­ture and ob­ses­sion fol­lows Cap­tain Ahab and his crew on their ill-fated pur­suit of a white whale.

The show takes place from Septem­ber 4 to 14 at Leeds Dock and for tick­ets call the box of­fice on 0113 224 3801. THE West York­shire Play­house will round off its Alan Ben­nett sea­son with a mu­si­cal ver­sion of the hit film A Pri­vate Func­tion.

Set in the late 1940s, Betty Blue Eyes tells the story of down on his luck chi­ropodist Gil­bert Chil­vers who, strug­gling to make ends meet, tries to make off with a hog des­tined for a royal ban­quet. The cast in­cludes Ha­dyn Oak­ley, Amy Booth-Steel and Sally Mates and the show will run at the Leeds theatre from June 11 un­til July 5.
