The Sea Wolf is a 1904 psychological adventure by American novelist Jack London. A ferry steamer sinks in fog-sealed San Francisco Bay. All passengers perish except literary critic Humphrey Van Weyden and the beautiful, independent, enigmatic Flaxen Brewster. They are rescued by a hell-ship under the command of Wolf Larsen, a man of ingrained cruelty. “Hump” becomes the target of Larsen’s brutality but also the source of companionship to the captain, whose creed is “Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.”
The drama will be directed by Dennis Mohr.
