Performance will be followed by a discussion with the performers and Pamela Shields.
The performance is free, but please call to call to reserve a seat - 212-947-6100.

May Be Honest was a huge success thanks to you! We sold out every show, had great discussions with local artists and historians, and created original, innovative theater right here in Berks County!In 1809 in Berks County, Susanna Cox, a “homely maid of 24 years,” was arrested, convicted and hanged for infanticide of her newborn son. She was uneducated, she could not speak English, she was a servant. Though her story has been told over and over since 1809, in court, in songs, in the news, and more, she never had the opportunity to tell it herself. Why do we keep telling her story? What is it that captivates us?
