Event Description

The Devil & Daniel Webster

Dates/Times: Friday, 9 February @7pm / Saturday, 10 February @4pm / Sunday, 11 February @2pm David Stephens, Oak Bluff MA Hailed as a classic when first published in “The Saturday Evening Post” in 1936, Stephen Vincent Benet’s THE DEVIL & DANIEL WEBSTER stands in the front ranks of beloved American short stories. A hard-luck New Hampshire farmer sells his soul to the Devil, then enlists the help of Daniel Webster “…the Union’s stay and New Hampshire’s pride…” to win it back in trial. The Devil summons the worst traitors and criminals from our history, and Webster must convince them to set free their fellow. Tickets are $24 and may be purchased online at www.pontine.org. Tickets may also be purchased at the door a half hour prior to each show, based on availability.
