The SpeakEasy Stage Company latest production, The Whale, is an emotional two act play that runs for nearly two hours and centers around the final weeks of Charlie, a morbidly obese, gay man who lives in rural Idaho.

The struggles Charlie face in this touching play written by Samuel D. Hunter and produced at The SpeakEasy Stage Co. by David R. Gammons made me uncomfortable at times. While his fate was never in doubt, I couldn’t help but wonder what would become of the motley cast of supporting characters: Liz, his co-dependent and enabling friend; Ellie, his angry teenage daughter; Elder Thomas, the persistent Mormon missionary; and even his ex-wife, Mary.

The Whale runs through Saturday, April 5th.  Get your tickets here.
