"Effectively, it's very bad theatre taken very seriously," Sarah, who also plays the scarred seamen, said. "Green's Moby Dick script, while being fraught with theatrical faux pas, actually does manage to capture the essential moments and message of Melville's saga.
"The cast is comprised of people who have mostly all worked together before and I knew I could trust them to help with the collaborative process of staging this somewhat intricate production. This is also the first time I have directed and performed in a show."
"Coarse acting appeals to my sense of irony because it's depiction of theatre at its least tidy while I'm rather a perfectionist. Green's adaptation is also the only Moby Dick script I have really enjoyed."
"In terms of characterisation, I have the sea captain from The Simpsons in my mind when playing this role. The main challenge is to be good at doing bad acting – it's not about playing it for laughs, it's about how you keep on going when everything else is going wrong.
"Moby Dick appealed because it's an actor's play – we've all had those terrible moments when something has gone wrong and you desperately try to carry on," he said. "This is all those moments occurring in the same play, creating the ultimate the exaggeration of theatre gone wrong."
