Connecticut filmmaker Bailey Pryor’s new documentary “The Charles W. Morgan” will have its premiere at the Garde Arts Center in New London at 7 p.m. Sunday. The one-hour film tells the extraordinary story of America’s last wooden whaleship and the saga of whaling, the first global industry dominated by America. From her humble beginnings in New Bedford in the year 1841, the film follows the adventures of the Morgan on 37 voyages around the world where this survived freeze-ups in the Arctic, attacks by south sea headhunters, fire aboard ship, and a host of other stories, each of which had the potential to end the vessel’s life. Yet more than 170 years later, the Charles W. Morgan lives on, and she is poised to sail again, on her 38th Voyage next month.
The film will receive its broadcast debut on CPTV on May 12 at 10 p.m., after which it will be aired on PBS affiliate stations around the country.
The screening of the film at the Garde will be followed by a panel discussion with Pryor, Executive Producer Steve Jones, Morgan Historian Matthew Stackpole, and Mystic Seaport Shipyard Director, Quentin Snediker, who oversaw the ship’s recent five-year restoration.
Tickets for the event are $25 per person and $30 at the door. VIP tickets are $100 and include a pre-film reception with the filmmakers, and preferred seating in the theater. Proceeds from the event will support the Morgan’s 38th Voyage.

“Old Love” by Norm Foster - From the author of THE LOVE LIST, the story spans three decades and half a dozen meetings between Bud, a salesman, and Molly, his boss’ wife. One of them is smitten from the very first meeting - the other, let’s just say - less so. The story is straightforward, easy and funny. Canada’s pre-eminent comic playwright Norm Foster has written a clever and witty dialogue celebrating the pursuit of love, the kind of love that makes you breathe just a little bit faster. Charmingly written, Foster’s use of one-liners serve the script well and has the audience smiling, chuckling and laughing throughout the entire play.april 11 through May 4, $20, $17 seniors, $12 children; (401) 596-2341
