In a Preternatural Way: The Witchcraft Trial of Mary Barnes

Written by Lisa Johnson and directed by Kandie Carl of the East Haddam Stage Company, the play tells the story of Mary Barnes from the viewpoint of seven of her contemporaries. Barnes, one of the last people executed for witchcraft in Connecticut Colony, was executed in 1663 during what is known as the Greater Hartford Witchcraft Panic.


Registration and payment in advance is required. Admission is $25 a person.
