On the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho, a six-hundred pound recluse hides away in his apartment and slowly eats 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 teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, The Whale tells the story of a man's last chance to redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places. "FOUR STARS. A deeply affecting and piercingly amusing play by Samuel D. Hunter [...] Leaves an emotional wallop in its wake." - New York Daily News.
