Meet the Mean Girls of Salem . . . Deep in the dark woods of Puritan New England, a clique of teenage girls make decisions that result in 20 executions, making them the most hated girls in history. Metro Theater Company and the Missouri History Museum present Afflicted: Daughters of Salem, a play inspired by the girls who forever established the legacy of Salem.

Denied all outlets for imagination and all hopes for the future, the girls unite in a secret society, and when they force the slave Tituba to tell their fortunes, they ignite a crucible of events that burns out of control, leading straight to the infamous Salem Witch Trials.

In the tradition of the hit feature film, Mean Girls, or the popular television series, Pretty Little Liars, the play looks inside teen politics where allies are found, power is taken, promises are made . . . and broken.

Following each performance, the audience becomes part of the play as they decide whether or not the girls can be forgiven for their acts.

At the Missouri History Museum. Thursdays at 10 a.m., Fridays at 10 a.m. and 7:30, Saturdays at 7:30, and Sundays at 2 p.m. through March 22.

Best for ages 10 and up and adults.
