Annisquam (the play) at Firehouse
September 22, 2023 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Something strange is going on in the tiny seaside community of Annisquam. Dr. Wendell Petit, a well respected Psychologist, has not been showing up for work. He has been drinking way too much and his daughter has noticed some very erratic behaviors coming from the man she once idolized. Rumor has it that the good Doctor might be romantically involved with a woman less than half his age, and the neighbors are starting to talk.
That is the premise of Lawrence Hennessy’s darkly disturbing, sometimes comic, always tragic play, Annisquam. Directed by Tim Diering, Annisquam stars Jim Manclark as the troubled Dr. Petit, with Katie Makem Boucher as his daughter, Emma, and Emily Colwell as his former patient, Allison. Lawrence N. Hennessy is a licensed psychologist and playwright residing in Rockport, Massachusetts and has produced numerous plays throughout Boston and Cape Ann.
Annisquam will be presented at the Firehouse Center for the Arts Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23 at 8pm, and Sunday, September 24 at 3pm. This play includes adult themes, and may not be suitable for children under the age of 16.
