“Travail” presented by History Alive Inc.

March 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$6.25 - $10.25
Witch House

The Witch House welcomes History Alive, Inc.’s production titled “Travail” which takes the audience on a tour of medical practice in New England over the last 300 years, specifically the history of women’s heath, obstetrical care and birth customs. It follows the struggle of a traditional midwife, whom we first meet in the 18th century as she endeavors to practice her inherited vocation in the increasingly flooded field of male, professionalized, European-trained doctors, to the present, where she sits on the periphery of standardized obstetrics. This performance will take place at the Free with admission to the Witch House.
