Central Catholic High School
Presents
The Island of Dr. Moreau

Having survived a shipwreck, days adrift at sea, and a "rescue" by brutish sailors, mild-mannered Edward Prendick finds himself on an uncharted island ruled by the disgraced Dr. Moreau. Ruthlessly pursuing what he believes to be God's work, Moreau experiments on living creatures, filling his dystopia with a menagerie of tortured Beast Folk desperate to obey laws they can't comprehend. The addition of Prendick to the island's tumultuous ecosystem results in chaos, violence, and ruin. A meditation on colonialism and the human capacity for destruction.
