llinois, 1861. Elizabeth Packard fights for her life and her dignity when her husband, Reverend Theopholis Packard, commits her to Jacksonville Insane Asylum without proof of insanity for challenging his religious fundamentalism. Based on historical events, Mrs. Packard is a penetrating story about one woman’s struggle to follow her convictions despite the enormous costs to her family, her friends and her personal dignity. Join us for a time to mourn and wonder as we ponder the costs of our own convictions as individuals within a religious community.
