A New Play From John Guare

From the mind behind hits like Six Degrees of Separation and Blue Leaves comes a twisting and unexpected tale of one playwright and his quest to know the truth. Expect the unexpected in this brand new play from John Guare with direction from Tony winner Jerry Zaks.

Deriving its name from an old whaling term (where sailors were believed to race across the ocean on harpooned whales) Nantucket Sleigh Ride stars Tony winner and five-time Emmy winner John Larroquette as our protagonist. The cast also includes Will Swenson, Douglas Sills and Adam Chanler-Berat.

What is Nantucket Sleigh Ride about?

One New York playwright turned venture capitalist is desperately trying to remember the events that took place on a far away island 35 years previously. On his quest for remembrance, he is chucked into a whirlpool of extraordinary circumstances from a giant lobster, Roman Polanski, Walt Disney, a murder, a stranded child and Jorge Luis Borges, with the most bizarre and curious results.
