The Farmington Witch Project: An Evening of Enlightment

Event Date/Time

Description

The Farmington Witch Project:  An Evening of Enlightment

The Farmington Witch Project: A Night of Enlightment

 

Looking back to honor those persecuted during the Connecticut Witchcraft Panics,

and looking forward with the hope of tolerance for all.

 

Between 1647 and 1663, Connecticut tried 34 people for witchcraft, and hanged 11.  The last people executed were Mary Barnes of Farmington and Rebecca and Nathaniel Greensmith of Hartford, on January 25, 1663.  It was a dark time, and an important time in Connecticut’s history.

 

Join the Stanley Whitman House and Herstory Theater in a magical  evening of music, theater, food and wine, and some very fun surprises as we celebrate the lives of all those souls, observe the 350th anniversary of the end of the executions, and affirm the hope of tolerance for all.

 

The evening will include;  bewitching music by Michael McDermott and Celeste Cumming;  a performance of “Panic in Connecticut; Accused Witches Have Their Say” by Virginia Wolf; a book reading and signing of “The Trial of Goody Gilbert” by author Suzanne Ress;  themed music by DJ Garth; food, wine, and beer befitting the occasion, and a number of other surprises!

Cost $35 in advance, $40 at the door
