NORTHBOROUGH – A portrayal of Deborah Sampson, who was the only woman known to have disguised herself and served in the Continental Army without getting caught, is coming to the Northborough Free Library.
In this performance of “Farm Girl on the Front Lines,” Sampson will be portrayed by Owner of Historical Portrayals by Lady J Janet Parnes.
As part of the performance as Sampson, Parnes will describe the victories, frustrations and close calls she experienced as a poor farm girl that risked humiliation and imprisonment to serve her country.
Young audience members will be able to come on stage and participate in period games.
The performance will take place on March 8 at the Northborough Free Library at 7 to 8 p.m. It is free and suitable for ages seven plus.
