It is not often acknowledged in Lovecraft's histories of the North Shore of Massachusetts that the influx of certain clandestine immigrant communities in the town of Innsmouth, around the year 1846, led to greatly expanded opportunities for women and minorities in the region.
What was it like to be married off to one of the "gentlemen from offshore," in one of the many and peculiar arrangements of that year? What was it to be a serving-girl in such a woman's house, who saw things she dared not tell? And what was it to be the kind of woman in Innsmouth who is erased from every history – the enslaved, the forgotten, the unmentionable?
A spoiled and reclusive captain's daughter, an Irish housemaid, and others from the docks to the finest houses of Innsmouth must all ask themselves what freedom is, what love is, and what it is worth to be human.
