About the show

A Lucille Lortel Award winner for Outstanding Play, the story of a man who struggles to reconnect with humanity as well as regain his own. More…

On the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho, a six hundred pound recluse hides away in his apartment eating himself to death. Desperate to reconnect with his long-estranged daughter, he reaches out to her, only to find a viciously sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, ‘The Whale’ tells the story of a man's last chance at redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places.
