Harrison_sDescription: It's September 1868, and Jacob and Nancy Jane Young are joining Jacob's business associate for a picnic along the White River. The day was idyllic, like a dream. But the dream soon turned to nightmare. Instead of building memories, the Youngs became memories. When the identity of who masterminded their murder is revealed, scandal and shock sets in. Nancy Clem, a woman, is accused. The articulate and ambitious city attorney, Benjamin Harrison, was brought in to prosecute Clem, her brother and a third associate in what became a landmark case: the first woman tried for murder in the State of Indiana. Witness the dramatic trail testimonies and the events of that tragic day as they unfold within the rooms of the President Benjamin Harrison Home. Come judge the outcome for yourself!  More PBHH theatre information.
