Though “Nantucket Sleigh Ride” is an old whaling term (referring to sailors racing across the ocean on harpooned whales), Guare’s play takes place far from the Arctic waters. Larroquette plays a New York playwright-turned-venture capitalist trying to remember the events that occurred on an island three decades prior. His quest leads him to an unexpected whirlpool involving a giant lobster, Roman Polanski, a pornography ring, Walt Disney, Jorge Luis Borges, and more.
