Hark!

In this absurdist play, a 17th-century pirate and a 1980s businesswoman are stranded on a mystererious island after death, a purgatory-like realm guarded by a giant Kraken. Despite the vastly different backgrounds and their joint inability to find peace, they must confront their pasts, regrets, and desires in an endless cycle of death and awakening as they navigate the absurdity of their situation. As they interact and clash, they begin to question the nature of reality, time, and the meaning of their existence. Through their experiences on the island, they ultimately grapple with themes of redemption, identity, and the search for meaning in a world devoid of logic.
