Touring Troupe

The Freetown Village Touring Troupe produces a play each year, which is presented at schools, churches, civic functions, festivals and black history celebrations, etc. The play features characters from Freetown Village such as Isaiah Cuffee and his wife, Sarah Elizabeth, who interact with the audience as they discuss the events of the day. Parallels between past and present events are evident as the characters talk about work, family, women's rights, education and other concerns in their lives.  The current touring production is entitled Mixed Medicine and takes a contemporary and historical look into issues related to health and healthcare.
