HARRISON – Dan O’Brien’s newest comedy, “The Voyage of the Carcass,” will sail onto the stage Thursday and Friday, Aug. 19 and 20, at Deertrees Theatre.

Beginning in the 1990s, O’Brien started writing plays that have won awards from prestigious arts facilities such as the Kennedy Center in Washington.

The Carcass is a 19th century ship under the direction of Capt. Bane Barrington, who has concocted a plan to sail to the North Pole. After seven years, the Carcass has lost most of the crew and is marooned in the ice with no apparent rescue in sight. But, what may seem to be a hopeless situation is actually masterminded by three writers in an air-conditioned theater. This will be the play’s first performances in Maine.

Tickets available at the Cool Moose in Bridgton, Fare Share Co-Op in Norway, Books & Things in Bethel and at the box office. Call 583-6747.
