Why See White Fang?
A new chapter in the White fang legend
A brand-new stage adaptation of Jack London's epic novel about unconditional love and friendship premieres at the Park Theatre this December, written and directed by Jethro Compton. Having reassembled the team that brought you hits such as The Bunker Trilogy and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, this timely play takes advantage of the winter setting. The original novel was adapted for the screen in 1991 by Disney, starring a young Ethan Hawke as the wolf-dog's owner. Now another chapter of the famed half-wolf has been added to canon, for a family friendly show this Christmas.
Rather than basing the story from the perspective of the titular wolf, we explore the struggle of survival by a young First Nations girl, who has survived the massacre of her tribe by Yukon goldhunters. Taken in by an old huntsman, she is safe; but now separated from her culture and family's tradition. Thankfully an abandoned wolf befriends her, and she learns the customs of her tribe to survive the frozen wilds. But around every corner comes a challenge, and her skills alone may not be enough to ensure her survival.
