The trial of Bridget Bishop, the first of the accused witches hanged in Salem, will be performed this Sunday, January 18, by the local theater group History Alive! The performance, “Cry Innocent,” has received critical acclaim from the New York Times and others.
The audience will play the part of the jury and will also be able to question cast members while they remain in character. The subject of this 40-minute play will be an appropriate presentation for Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday.
The service leader is Peter VanDeBogert.
The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Religious education classes are offered, and visitors are always welcome.
