“Dear Sarah” brings to life the relationship of Captain Charles Barry and his wife, Sarah Lord, between 1846 and 1851. The play consists of Captain Barry’s letters, housed in the Museum’s archives, which illustrate life at sea and the bonds of marriage in the mid-19th century.
Tickets for the virtual play (participants receive an emailed link to the video) are $5 per person.
Reserve your tickets (and add your dinner selections!) by visiting our Museum Mercantile. Please click here: brickstoremuseumshop.org
SPECIAL NOTE: If you have already purchased tickets, but cannot find the emailed link, please check your email spam filter. Museum emails infamously get caught in spam filters and before becoming frustrated, please have a look there. Additionally, if you have ordered a play ticket after 5pm, you may receive your link on the next business day (we send links out manually). If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
