From the website: "The Whaleship Essex and its crew met with tragedy on November 20, 1820, when it was sunk by an enraged sperm whale in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Based on first-hand accounts, 'The Whaleship Essex' is an epic, ensemble tale of survival. Infused with authentic sea chanteys, 'The Whaleship Essex' revels in the common language shared by both the theatrical and the nautical worlds."
