Inspired by Herman Melville's epic novel, Moby Dick, and set in the local hall of a small town in the midlands, Moby Dan features a cast of four aspirationally challenged individuals and one inspirational hippy. Locked into the hall with a copy of the novel for one whole night, this motley crew embarks on an imaginary journey to capture Melville's monster.
