Abigail/1702 A Twice-Told Tale by Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa — A REGIONAL PREMIERE!
Learn what happened to Abigail Williams 10 years after she danced in the weird woods of Salem in Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”.
In this tale of New England witchery, Abigail/1702 is ten years after the harrowing and tragic events of the Salem witch trials. Abigail Williams—the lead accuser who sent twenty people to their doom as a young girl—now lives under an assumed name on the outskirts of Boston, quietly striving to atone for her sins. When a handsome stranger arrives claiming to be a sailor in need, Abigail takes him in, and long-dormant passions awaken within her. Love starts to grow between the two—an unlikely flower cracking through salty earth. But their contentment is short-lived, for someone else is coming for Abigail, someone who has been looking for her since she danced in the weird woods of Salem.
Shows are Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 PM | Sundays at 2:00 PM
“Aguirre-Sacasa’s skillful expression of religion and depiction of a woman’s struggle for her soul is mesmerizing.”
— Times Herald-Record
“ABIGAIL/1702 is literary brain food…not so much a sequel to The Crucible, but instead a unique retelling of Faust…full of heart and conviction.”
— Poughkeepsie Journal
This production is sponsored in part by AmeriHealth New Jersey.

The Areas Hottest Off-Broadway Theatre
The Waterfront South Theatre, located just a block south of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, is the first theatre built in Camden, New Jersey in more than 100 years. This gorgeous state-of-the-art theater was designed to be reminiscent of Walt’s Cafe, the corner bar, that once stood on this corner up until 1967. Thanks to the Heart of Camden, The Domenica Foundation, Ignarri Loomis Architects and others, this grand space is home to South Camden Theatre Company.
Today, 96 seats and thousands of theatre patrons a year have replaced the bar stools and shipyard workers that at one time called this corner of Camden “home”.
The Domenica Hall Auditorium accommodates 96 people and is a completely accessible facility.
