AFFLICTED: DAUGHTERS OF SALEM
In the Danny Peterson Theatre at the Morrison Center
Afflicted: Daughters of Salem
by Laurie Brooks
Directed by Jaime Nebeker.
In 1691 Puritan New England, fear and superstition were rampant. Singing, dancing, and amusement of any kind were forbidden. The devil was everywhere. Five girls coming of age in Salem Village find an ally in enslaved Tituba. The girls make a pact and build a sisterhood deep in the woods. Alliances are formed, promises made and broken, and power taken. Afflicted: Daughters of Salem tells the story of the Salem accusers and the events that led up to the infamous Salem witch trials. This origin story examines how these teenage girls became accusers and caused 20 people to be put to death for witching.
Enter on the Boise River side of the Morrison Center through the main entrance.
Warning: This production visually leans strongly into the historical relevance and the accounts of human and animal hangings associated with the early American witch trials. Though depictions are artistic in scope, this production contains imagery that may be disturbing.
Masks are recommended inside the Morrison Center.
