Rita Parisi has been entertaining audiences for over 20 years in the New England area.

Rita Parisi from Waterfall Productions will present “Gothic Victorian Tales by Candlelight” at the October Meeting of the Whittier Home on October 26th from 4:00 to 6:00pm. 

This theatrical presentation will feature stories about CURSES, DEATH and IMMORTALITY from the 19th century New England writer, Sarah Orne Jewett.

A native of South Berwick Maine, her stories mirror the everyday lives of New Englanders; often reflecting the mysterious and supernatural.

John Greenleaf Whittier and Sarah Orne Jewett shared a warm friendship through extensive correspondence, and had mutual admiration for each other’s work.  For Whittier, Sarah Jewett became the “daughter” he had never had; for Miss Jewett, Whittier took the place of the father she lost all too early.

This program is funded by a grant from the Amesbury Cultural Council. 

Seasonal refreshments will be provided.  The cost is $10 per person.
