Program Description

Event Details

The Lady Lighthouse Keeper is an intimate and relatable look at family life in the late 1800s against the backdrop of the rigor required to maintain a lighthouse. A fictionalized account based on the life of Stella Prince, a woman who resists society’s expectations and dedicates herself to a life of hard work out of a sense of duty. Stella lived at Hortons Point for more than half of her life, from 1871 when she was three years of age until she married at 37. Through Stella, we experience the simple joys and hardships of lighthouse living on the edge of Long Island Sound, outside the small community of Southold.
