April 17, 2015 ~~~ Lawrence Howard “The Essex”
Friday @ 7:30
The Essex is the true story of a Nantucket whaling ship that was rammed and sunk by a sperm whale in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in 1820, leaving 20 men in three small boats with very little food or water. Reaching the coast of South America 93 days later, only eight sailors survived the ordeal of thirst, starvation and despair. This is the true story that became the inspiration for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Meticulously researched and historically accurate, The Essex is the fifth installment in Portland Story Theater’s acclaimed Armchair Adventurer series, created and performed by Lawrence Howard and directed by Lynne Duddy.
A captivating performer, Howard holds his audiences spellbound and has been
called “a master of non-fiction on the stage.”
This program is appropriate for young adults age 17+ if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
