The Voyage of the Carcass (Off-Broadway) Story

When their Polar expedition goes awry, only three members of the doomed SS Carcass remain: Bane Barrington, a buffoonish explorer; Chaplain Kane, a rector in drag; and Israel, their mute, Canadian first mate. After 40 years trapped in the ice, will they make it home alive? First, they'll take a break and explore themselves and their "issues" as actors dealing with an arctic blast of their own: Bill is a struggling mime, his wife, Helen, is an ad executive and would-be actress, and Dan is a passive-aggressive puppet master. Tony Award-winner Dan Fogler (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) brings his unique comic sensibility to Dan O'Brien's script. Weaving commedia dell'arte with theatre verite, The Voyage of the Carcass is a hilarious play-within-a-play and an affectionate look at people's dreams, both failed and realized.
