The House of the Seven Gables: I Am Joan Sullivan: A Theatrical Experience

  • The House of the Seven Gables 123-113 Derby Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

In I Am Joan Sullivan, meet the former Irish Catholic indentured servant of merchant John Turner, who built The House of the Seven Gables in 1668, and her new master, turbulent Quaker merchant Thomas Maule, as she sues for her freedom from his alleged abuse. Explore the trials of a young immigrant woman with little to no agency in America where she was considered a second class citizen because of her ethnicity, gender, and faith, long before the immigrant struggle of the 19th and 20th centuries that inspired our founder, Caroline Emmerton, in her original settlement mission.
