On the weekend of August 6, I had scripts produced in three different states — DEATH BY POINSETTIA in Rhode Island, THE BEAUTIFUL OGRE AND OTHER FAIRY TALES in Maryland and THE TALE OF THE WHALE in Danville, Virginia.
I got to one of those.
THE TALE OF THE WHALE was produced by the North Star Theatre Project, a youth ensemble in Danville, Virginia. This was the first production of the script, which is loosely (very loosely) based on a true story of a whale that washed up on the coast of Oregon.
THE TALE OF THE WHALE
A whale washes up on the beach. The town’s mayor is determined to remove it before a key visitor arrives. Complications, and comedy, ensue. Very loosely based on the true story where an Oregon town tried to blow up a beached whale in the 1970s, with disastrous results. Think blubber raining down from the skies. Cast: 9 — 4 male, 3 female, 1 non-gender adult, 1 non-gender kid.
