Why did the British burn Falmouth
(now Portland) to the ground in October 1775?
Walk with your hooded specter and hear the frightful tale of the destruction of our fair town by the British in 1775. From the meeting of the Committee of Inspection, to the mass exodus of the residents from Falmouth, those who call Eastern Cemetery their forever home will give you a glimpse into the past.
Dress warmly! The play lasts about 40 minutes, and it gets VERY breezy in the cemetery—especially at night for some reason? It will CHILL YOU TO THE BONE.
Half of all proceeds go directly back into our work at the Eastern Cemetery, and the other half goes to the incredibly talented and hard-working souls of Acorn Productions.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under (it's not skeery, kiddos!) and are available at the gate on a first-come, first-served basis. Shows are weather-permitting (we have been known to work in the snow, but it really just depends!) Dogs are not allowed (sorry, ruff-ruffs, we know you like good theater, but rules is rules).
Special thanks to Doug Campbell and Diane Brakeley for the jaunty artwork.
