Target audience: 

Ages 18 and older.  A murdered daughter, an ancient husband, and a wild granddaughter all make Ann Foster a prime candidate to accuse of witchcraft in 1692 Salem.  Ann denies the accusations, but under torturous examination, she cannot hold out for long.  What happens to an old woman in a Puritan society when she is already considered “the other,” and are we capable of the same thing today?  Join Great Bear Folk Theatre storyteller Lori Prescott Hansen as she unfolds the true tale of her own ancestor who was wrongly convicted.
