Maybe DICK – Friday 3rd May 2024
Friday 3rd May 2024
Maybe Dick is Hambledon Production’s new parody of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, and is coming to Lane on 3rd May 2024 – and is NOT to be missed if you need a good laugh!
John Hewer performs his one man show playing over eight different characters.
There is Captain Ahab who bears more than a passing resemblance to Abraham Lincoln, Starbuck who brings the captain a wide variety of coffee in the morning, and Elijah the ship’s oddball. His incredible range sees him transform seamlessly into characters with such a huge variety of flawless accents.
Along with his seagull companion, the aptly named Steven Seagull, Maybe Dick is jam packed with silly humour but you don’t need to have read Moby Dick to get the jokes. John Hewer says “The story-telling comes second to joke-telling, even though we’ve managed to stay pretty faithful to the book and the original characters.”
