Accused Witches Have Their Say
Tuesday, January 22
Between 1642 and 1693 about 40 people in the colony of Connecticut were tried as witches, and at least 10 of them were hanged. Who were these women? How did they come to be accused of witchcraft and what was life like for them? Actress Virginia Wolf portrays five women accused of witchcraft in 17th century Connecticut in a program which sheds light on the puritan society that condemned so-called witches to their death thirty years before the hysterics of Salem, MA.
Russell Library and the Middlesex County Historical Society are co-sponsoring this program.
