ABOUT THE SHOW
A stage adaptation, by Nick Warren, of Hemingway’s classic, The Old Man and the Sea.
Santiago is an old fisherman who hasn’t brought in a catch for 84 days. While the villagers pass judgements on his past and his future, the old man heads far out into the Gulf of Mexico where he hooks a giant marlin. And so begins his epic battle.
Working within and around the themes of life, death, brotherhood and the struggle for existence, this imaginative adaptation gives this classic text a modern twist for the contemporary audience.
Using chorus, mask, shadow theatre, physical performance, an innovative set and epic sound design, this is a delightfully theatrical re-imagining of Hemmingway’s classic tale.
