The Widow's Masquerade


Included with Admission


No Event Ticket Required

In celebration of Women’s History Month, The Chownings’ Jug Broke Theatre Company explores the adventures of Hannah Snell.  A clever 18th-century adventurer and soldier, Hannah successfully masqueraded as a man and joined the King’s Navy. During her years of service, she fought side-by-side with her male counterparts.  Her true identity remained a well-guarded secret until she left the military and revealed her true gender. Hannah has the distinction of being the first female to receive a commission by the King for military service.
