Live at the Tavern in 1774
July 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Meet Abner Sanger and a couple of Keene’s 18th century young women on Saturday, July 28th at 2pm. Sanger is best known as Keene’s jack-of-all-trades (and town gossip!) who lived across the street from Isaac and Sarah Wyman in the late 1700s. Today, his diary acts as the preeminent resource for understanding daily life in Keene during the late 18th-early 19th century and is the inspiration for the performances. JJ Prior will portray Sanger in the year 1774 while Emilia Whippie-Prior and Alexa Wallace will portray two friends who meet at the Wyman Tavern over tea to discuss their differing political points of view.
Performance will be preceded by a 1pm tour of the Wyman Tavern with educator Meghan Green who will give a special tour on the role of women in 18th century taverns.
Performance Admission is $5/person. Specialized Tour & Performance is $10/person. Space is limited. RSVP to the Historical Society at 603.352.1895 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
