The Puritans


"THE PURITANS' evolved from the examination of how far one can go in an attempt to isolate himself from the 'world,' for misguided religious or moral creeds.
I wanted to capture a heightened example of how this sort of 'social hibernation' damages the family structure. My co-protagonist, JOY SUTTON, (Eileen Kearney) the controlling matriarch of a traditional all-American family, has no coping skills in the modern world, so she takes her family to another century and builds up a facade of how she wants to re-imagine her life.
