So Said the Children illuminates the horror of this era with a fictionalized account of an accused witch, Elizabeth Martin, who flees to the Praying Indians of Natick for protection. Before the year is over, nineteen women and some men, all having been convicted of witchcraft, are taken to Gallows Hill. Upon a barren slope near Salem Village, they are hanged by the neck until they are dead. Many more are tortured, coerced into false confessions, or die in prison. One man is pressed to death. This insightful drama lets us only hope that one might survive.
