“For there is no folly of the beasts of the earth which is not infinitely outdone by the madness of men.” How do we cope with loss? What prevents us from escaping from life? Robert, recently divorced, loses his job and retreats to his bathtub. Disillusioned and overwhelmed by his troubles, he picks up Herman Melville’s novel and begins a journey. Set in a bathroom, The Renegade Company recreates Melville’s characters’ experience aboard the ship.
