The Salem witch trials have intrigued historians, storytellers, and audiences for hundreds of years. Jessica Almasy’s performance adds to the intrigue. Her delivery evokes wonder and incredulity as she recounts the strange details of the event, many of which may seem nearly unimaginable today. Her tone is often irreverent when posing questions designed to entice listeners into the story. The text doesn’t aim to solve the mysteries associated with the famous trial. It’s a discussion of the facts, which Almsay delivers with an informal air, a youthful voice, and a quick pace. In dialogue, when she speaks for the accusers and the accused, her voice deepens, pulling the listener in with her conviction. A.M.P. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
