Side Trips from Boston Nightlife

Cry Innocent: The People versus Bridget Bishop

Updated 11/07/2013

Fodor's Review

This show, the longest continuously running play north of Boston, transports audience members to Bridget Bishop's trial of 1692. After hearing historical testimonies, the audience cross-examines the witnesses and must then decide the verdict. Actors respond in character revealing much about the Puritan frame of mind. Each show is different and allows audience members to play their "part" in history.
