“The belly [of the whale] is the dark place where digestion takes place and new energy is created. The story of Jonah in the whale is an example of a mythic theme that is practically universal, of the hero going into a fish's belly and ultimately coming out again, transformed…It's a descent into the dark...the hero is swallowed and taken into an abyss to be later resurrected…[he] must now suffer [through] trials and revelations while learning how to come to terms with this power of the dark and emerge, at last, to a new way of life.”
For The Rook, the world's greatest master criminal, the Belly of the Whale takes the form of St Dismus Hospital for the Criminally Insane, a purgatory of brick, mortar, and steel bars overseen by a vicious sadist. Four patients there claim to be The Rook, but only one of them is the genuine article! How did The Rook come to be in this place, and how can he possibly hope to escape when he can't even remember his own past?
The latest in the wildly popular Rook plays, with the audience, as usual, being presented the chance to solve the mystery! But be warned--to learn the truth, it will be necessary to enter the whale's belly along with The Rook! And no one emerges from the Belly of the Whale unchanged...
