Queensborough Alumni to Appear in Chasing The New White Whale

Arthur Adair, Assistant Professor, Speech Communication and Theatre Arts, has cast four of his former outstanding acting students, Khari Constantine, Victoria A. Villier, Sabrina Fara Tosti, and Trey Adams in the new play, Chasing the New White Whale, by Michael Gorman. 
The play uses Melville’s 19th-century monster as a metaphor for the modern plague of opioid addiction, and the ruinous effects of the opiate epidemic on the commercial fishing industry. It opens November 24 and runs through December 9 at La MaMa, located at the iconic Ellen Stewart Theatre.
“There is no greater thrill than being able to work with Alumni in the professional arena, it is the true culmination of the work we began at Queensborough” said director Adair, who was an Artist-in-Residence at La MaMa from 1997-2007, “They are soaring in rehearsals, and thriving, among a company of seasoned actors, as artists in their own rights.”
