Legacy of the Hanging Judge

October 20, 2017, 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

“Legacy of the Hanging Judge” replays the events in the words of those who lived through the harrowing times in 1692 —and those who did not fare as well. Prepare to be interrogated by magistrate John Hathorne, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s great-great grandfather, infamous for his role in the condemnation and deaths of accused witches. Encounter the tormented, the accused and their accusers in this interactive theatrical experience. Beware. You may find yourself accused of “writing in the devil’s book!”

Performances begin every ten minutes and last approximately 35 minutes. Last performance begins at closing. Tickets for each of the plays (Legacy of the Hanging Judge and The Spirits of the Gables) is $15 or $28 for a combination ticket. Visit 7gables.org for information and tickets. Advance ticket purchase highly recommended.
