Gothic Victorian Tales by Candlelight Reservations




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.   For more information and reservations, please contact the Whittier Home at 978-388-1337 or make and pay for your reservation via this site.
