Jay O'Callahan's "The Spirit of the Great Auk"
Start Date: 3/28/2013Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 3/28/2013

Event Description:
Jay O’Callahan’s stirring drama is inspired by the real-life odyssey of Dick Wheeler's four month 1,500 mile kayak journey from Newfoundland to Buzzard's Bay, Massachusetts. Wheeler was retracing the journey of the now-extinct Great Auk bird. Newfoundland fishermen warned Dick Wheeler that the fish in the Grand Banks were disappearing. In Jay's story, those fishermen become a modern Greek chorus warning us that the fish are disappearing from the sea. Following the performance is a question and answer session with both Jay, the storyteller, and Dick, the kayaker.
