“At Samuel’s Tavern, And Thereabouts” at Gates Hall

Motivated by three of Samuel Throop’s tavern journals which reside in the W-PHS archives, the original play “At Samuel’s Tavern, And Thereabouts” reveals the satisfactions, frustrations, and merriment of the pioneering Throop family, along with other early settlers who also forged their unique paths through the wilderness to Pultneyville in the early 1800s.

Written by W-PHS playwright, Irene Bierer, the play will be presented on Saturday, May 6 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, May 7 at 3:00 pm in historic Gates Hall, 4107 Lake Road in Pultneyville.   Nearly two hundred years old, the primitive ambiance of historic Gates Hall, the oldest continuously active small community theatre in the United States, appropriately sets the scene for this production.

Please visit www.w-phs.org for details and ticket information for this Bicentennial event that will take the audience back in time to the settlement of northern Wayne County on the southern shore of Lake Ontario in Pultneyville.
