I've long wondered why no witch burning historical reenactment societies exist.
There is the Salem Witch Museum and whatever tediously educational role-playing dramas it presents, sure. But as far as I'm aware no just-for-the-Hell-of-it recreational organizations devote their weekends to dressing up in Puritan costumes and putting lonely old women to the test.
The simple period outfits and distinctive conical headgear would not be too expensive to tailor. There are no expensive muskets or swords to buy. All you'd need is about twenty members to club together to fund the construction of a ducking stool. And that would be a one-time purchase only.
Perhaps such a group would experience difficulties attracting women desirous of spending their Saturdays being tortured and screamed at before eventually being fed to the all-consuming flames. In that case, surely some male attendee would be glad to assume seventeenth-century female drag and submit himself to the weekend witchfinders so the show can go on? The more gnarly, wrinkled and wizened the accused looks the better if you ask me.
Of course, these days, traditional historical reenactment societies are in decline. It's all Japanese animation and Star Wars now. Personally, I think the character of Darth Vader would be far more interesting if he and his Stormtroopers indulged in a little witch burning in their faraway galaxy every so often; and a rebel planet where life is similar to Puritan New England would be a highly entertaining addition to that movie franchise.
The Crucible meets The Empire Strikes Back. How's that for a pitch?
