David Commander's Toy Theater:

In this modern toy theater piece, I intend to draw a parallel between the 1819 sinking of the whaling-ship ESSEX by a sperm whale, and the dangerous backlash of overtaxing the Earth’s resources. Like the crew of the Essex, we are engaged in a chase that leads to our own demise. We have already begun to feel the initial repercussions of our own insatiable appetite. Changing weather patterns, drought, famine and pollution whisper a promise to make us castaways set adrift in the only vessel we have.
