|'From Out of the Fiery Furnace' free this Saturday at Hopewell|
The National Park Service will stage a performance of "From Out the Fiery Furnace," a one act play written and directed by Christine Emmert and performed by veteran stage and screen actress Barbara Hannevig.
Set on the home front during the Civil War, the play demonstrates how a woman's life and love could be tracked through her relationship with a Hopewell stove.
Hannevig brings to life several characters of the period including runaway slaves, "fallen" women, indentured servants, orphaned children and others.
