Description:
 Jean Norvell transforms into the amazing Hannah Penn as she recounts her life as the second wife of William Penn, a role largely ignored by historians. After William died, Hannah became the Proprietor of Pennsylvania, and needed all the business skills she had learned from her father to govern the province and pay down its debt. She succeeded: she governed Pennsylvania from England for eight years. At her death Pennsylvania was completely debt free.
This is an all ages event.
