MCMANUS STAGE | Opens February 26

Between Breaths is based on the life of Dr. Jon Lien — known in Newfoundland as “the Whale Man” — who pioneered techniques for rescuing whales trapped in fishing nets. Moving backward in time, from Lien’s final moments to his first whale intervention, this poignant storydepicts Lien’s rescue efforts, which saved over 500 animals, and his ownstruggle with relentless paralysis and dementia. From Newfoundland’s Artistic Fraud (Tempting Providence, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams), Between Breaths considers what we hold onto when everything else is gone.
