Sometimes "livin' large" is no kind of living at all. At least not when you're tipping the scales at 600 pounds, like Charlie, the moving (and yet immobile) protagonist of The Whale. Since the death of his boyfriend, Charlie has confined himself to his small Idaho apartment and is eating himself to death. His only friend, a nurse, nearly kills him with kindness while his own acquaintance, a troubled young missionary, is determined to rescue his soul. His health deteriorating rapidly, Charlie refuses to be hospitalized -- and then his estranged daughter suddenly shows up in the mix. Nearly Naked Theatre Artistic Director Damon Dering plays the title role in this humorous, devastating play by Obie-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter (A Bright New Boise). Learn More
