Custom-written for the "Witch House" in Salem. Two decades prior to the infamous Salem Witch Trials, a well-respected, God-fearing household is falling apart. The audience, like the proverbial "fly on the wall" eavesdrops on the conflicts of men, women and children in the battle for the soul of New England. A young girl is tortured by an invisible malady. What--or Who--is to blame? Has the devil been raised on New England's frontier?
The audience is free to investigate the authentic 17th century mansion--the only building in Salem with direct ties to the actual witch trials of 1692--to overhear what they will. Each person, of course, will end up with a different understanding of how poor Ruth is afflicted.
Entry is timed by ticket. Subsequent entries to hear other sides of the story are sold on site, based on availability.
