More information about Swept Away

In Swept Away, head back to 1888, off the coast of New Bedford, Massachusetts. When a violent storm sinks a whaling ship, four surviving souls — a young man in search of adventure, his big brother who has sworn to protect him, a captain at the end of a long career at sea, and a worldly first mate who has fallen from grace — each face a reckoning. How far will they go to stay alive? And can they live with the consequences? Don’t miss this electrifying, soul-stirring exploration of how facing tragedy can open the door to forgiveness.

Fans of The Avett Brothers, the band behind such hits as “Murder in the City,” “If It’s the Beaches,” and “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise,” will make this a must-see to hear the song sung by a top-notch cast. Get ready for a nautical journey like no other.

What to watch for

  • Swept Away marks the first stage musical project of The Avett Brothers, the Grammy Award-winning folk rock band with hits including “If It's The Beaches” and “I And Love And You.”
  • The Arena Stage production of Swept Away featured John Gallagher, Jr., Stark Sands, Adrian Blake Enscoe, and Wayne Duvall.
  • Survival stories are a Broadway staple as of late: the Tony-nominated 2023 play Life of Pi, based on the book and movie, also followed a young man (and some animals) shipwrecked and fighting for survival.
