"The House of Seven Gables", June 22 at 6:30 PM

Please join us on Friday, June 22 at 6:30 PM to enjoy a live theater performance of Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1851 romance The House of Seven Gables, staged by the Portsmouth Pontine Theatre co-directors Greg Gathers & Marguerite Mathews.  Set in Salem, Massachusetts, the story follows several generations of the ill-fated Pyncheon family, bowed under a curse dating from the famous witch trials, and trapped in the once magnificent, but now decrepit, House of the Seven Gables. Based on Hawthorne’s experience of growing up in Salem, and interwoven with incidents from the history of the Hawthorne family, The House of the Seven Gables was an instant success, and remains a great American classic.

The performance is open to the public, and admission is free.  Light refreshments will be available before the play begins in our downstairs Lane Room.  For more information, please contact Darrell Eifert at (603) 926-3368.
