Between Breaths at Garrick Theatre

Well-known in Newfoundland as the Whale Man, Dr. Jon Lien during the course of his work pioneered techniques for rescuing whales entrapped in fishing nets. Often risking his very life in the water with the formidable and frightened animals, Dr. Lien would seek to earn their trust as much as the fishermen’s.

Between Breaths, a play by the formidable writing and directing team of Robert Chafe and Jillian Keiley, jumps time backwards from the final moments of Lien’s life to his very first whale intervention. As his life becomes further and further confined, his mind stretches itself in memories of release and salvation.
