Anne Barrett will take you on Mary Chapman Lawrence’s journey across the Pacific aboard a whaling ship that lasted for three and a half years. In this performance, Mary will bring forth from her meticulously kept journal, the joys and tribulations of life at sea with her husband, Captain Samuel Lawrence, and their daughter Minnie. The sights and sounds of foreign ports and their inhabitants, the sailors’ sea shanties, the surprisingly robust social life among whaling ships, and the challenging everyday details, all will come to life as Mary takes you on a journey.
