'The Whale' at Peppermint Creek Theatre Co.
Funny and profound, 'The Whale' is the story of the morbidly obese Charlie, who tries to lay his past to rest in the face of his rapidly declining health. Along the way he reaches out to his estranged teenage daughter, whose bitterness and snarky attitude prove to be a difficult obstacle. The reclusive Charlie meets with a series of family and unexpected friends in an effort to make peace with his demons. 8 p.m., Sept. 24-26 and Oct. 1-3. 2 p.m., Sept. 27 and Oct. 4. $15/$10 students and seniors. Miller Performing Arts Center, 6025 Curry Lane, Lansing. (517) 927-2016, peppermintcreek.org.
