Location: Penobscot Theatre Company

Life is hard enough for a bright and independent 13 year old girl in1853, but when Abbie’s father moves the family to Matinicus Rock to tend the lighthouse, it becomes much worse. With a desperately harsh winter and a growing storm, Abbie’s courage and resolve will be tested in ways she never could have imagined. Inspired by the true story of Maine folk heroine Abigail Burgess, this is a story of community, isolation, and resilience in the face of forces far greater than ourselves.
