Jay O’Callahan, The Spirit of the Great Auk

Thursday, Mar 28, 2013 7:30p

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 Wheeler that the fish in the Grand Banks were disappearing. Following the performance is a question and answer session with both Jay, the storyteller, and Dick, the kayaker.
