Herman Melville’s classic tale of revenge and retribution is retold in this inventive, comedic retelling on the high seas. Written and performed by John Hewer and directed by Bruce Knight, MAYBE DICK runs from 19 to 23 March. 

Nantucket, 1841. Ishmael signs on to the Pequod, and witnesses the perils of nature, obsession, punning and physical comedy, as Captain Ahab conducts a reckless pursuit of the savage white whale, Moby Dick.

Herman Melville’s classic tale of revenge and retribution is retold in this inventive, comic retelling on the high seas from the company behind Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show and Dracula! One Bloody Fang After Another.

All plot will be lampooned. All jokes will be harpooned.

MAYBE DICK is the latest piece of new writing to tour from Hambledon Productions, a Lincolnshire based theatre company of seventeen years that specialises in classic comedy and new, local writing. After a sell-out tour of festivals and smaller venues in 2023, Maybe Dick, via an exciting co-production with New Bedford’s Whaling Museum in Massachusetts, USA, is embarking on a new nationwide theatre tour.
