Let There Be Shanties: Women and Whaling in Sag Harbor

At the Whaling Museum

Martha Pichey, a playwright and screenwriter, will present a free multimedia event at the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum tomorrow evening at 6.

Titled “Women and Whaling,” the evening will begin with actors reading an excerpt from her new play “Drowning on Dry Land,” which is set in New Bedford, Mass., in 1871. She will also tell the stories of three women who went to sea, one of whom, Lizzie Edwards, was a whaling captain’s wife from Sag Harbor.

The program’s subtitle also promises “a diagram or two, and a sea shanty or three.” Ms. Pichey’s first play, “Ashes and Ink,” was presented at the JDT Lab at Guild Hall in 2015.
