Event Description

Wallingford Public Library, 200 North Main Street, Wallingford,  welcomes the public to a performance by professional actress Virginia Wolf entitled Panic in Connecticut: Accused Witches Have Their Say on Wednesday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m.            

Between 1642 and 1693, at least 40 people in the colony of Connecticut were tried as witches, and at least 10 of them were hanged.  Most of them were women. Who were these women?  How did they come to be accused of witchcraft?  What was life like for them?  Did they truly practice witchcraft?  Who were their accusers, and why. How and why did the accusing of witches finally end…or has it?

Travel back to the 17th century and hear what 5 women accused of witchcraft have to say.  Actress Virginia Wolf brings them to life, fully costumed, fully incensed, fully frightened!

This program is free and open to the public however seating is limited. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
