Below is an announcement from Wilmington Community Television:
WILMINGTON, MA — “John and Abigail Adams: Letters from Quarantine” is a dramatic reading of selected letters of American history’s first “power couple.” John and Abigail Adams both went through times of quarantine during the 18th century small pox epidemic – he shortly before their marriage, and she along with her 4 small children while her husband was helping birth the new country in Philadelphia. As expressed in their letters, they felt the pangs of isolation, fear, uncertainty, and separation, much like the ones we’ve all been facing in the past months. Dramatically read by Todd Yard and Elaine Crane. Filmed and Edited by WCTV’s Ryan Malyar.
This unique presentation is also a fundraiser for both Greater Worcester Opera Company and Wilmington Community Television. A donation button is located on the GWOC facebook page. Your support of the Arts in Massachusetts and your local Community Media Center are greatly appreciated.
