    A group of castaways in the South Pacific discover Captain Nemo—long thought dead—still haunting his now-crippled Nautilus. A debate arises between the men and the aged captain: in his years-long private war for revenge, was Nemo justified? Morally responsible? The play chronicles the interwoven histories of Professor Morgan Aronnax, a woman who has hidden her gender from the public at the behest of the French minister of science, and Nemo, as they voyage beneath the world’s oceans to the unclaimed tundra of the South Pole.

    This fun, frenetic and freewheeling farce updates the Old English poem about the warrior Beowulf and is told through the eyes of the epic’s writer, known only as “the bard.” In this version of the story, Beowulf is an out-of-shape prince, while the bard is a desperate poet struggling with a case of writer’s block. This retelling also introduces the bloodthirsty warrior princess Gunborg, whose quest to reach her heroic destiny is ignored by her overprotective father, the king. Learn More
