Around Town Tellers is presenting Moby Dick: A Storytelling Adaptation by Dean Verger at the Nanaimo Yacht Club on Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m. Dean Verger has torn away all but the heart of the story and has fashioned a compelling tale of humour, passion and humanity.
"Storytelling is a precursor to acting," Verger said. "I imagine folks thousands of years ago, huddled together around a warming fire, a fire that drives away the surrounding darkness. The imagination could fill the night with scary thoughts.
"And then a voice would begin to tell a tale. That tale would wash away the fearful thoughts and take the listener on an adventure."
Tickets are $10 and are available at 250-729-9155.
