In Upcoming Events, by , on September 22nd, 2015

Niagara University Theatre will kick off their 52nd season with a spellbinding play, Afflicted: Daughters of Salem by Laurie Brooks.  This powerful reimagining of the events leading to the infamous witch trials explores how girls have negotiated alliances and power throughout history just as they do today. Themes investigated are adolescent rebellion, as well as manipulation as a form of bullying.

An insightful exploration of the psychology underlying the crucible of events that shaped early American history, this exceptional family/school event offers insightful audience interaction following each performance.

Afflicted: Daughters of Salem will be on stage in the Leary Theatre within the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre, Clet Hall, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1, and Mon. Oct. 5, and at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2, and Saturday, Oct. 3, with 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday, Oct. 3, and Sunday, Oct. 4.
