The James Homestead by Skip Webb
Meet Martha by Liz Webb
The scene forwards to 1898. Martha Leavitt James, played by Liz Webb, is sitting in a rocking chair at the end of a long day. She is talking to her deceased husband, informing him about his children, how she managed the farm, and the changes she made to the house. Accustomed to lively exchanges with her husband over the Sunday sermons, she now decides to tell him her decisions. She ends with a statement that she will prepare her will tomorrow.
The scene switches to 1905. Martha has died from consumption. A recording by Atty. Bob Casassa reading Martha’s will is heard. A recording by Sara Casassa reading Martha’s obituary ends the program.
Liz is in period nightgown.
