Murder, scandal, and whorehouses are nothing new for this bawdy tour that proves history does not have to be boring. The adults-only tour is stand-up history as costumed characters take you back into a time the city would like to forget. (Continued below) 


The Portsmouth Underbelly is performed every Monday and Saturday evening at 6 pmon the corner of State and Pleasant Streets (The Rusty Hammer) in Portsmouth. Tour is $10. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling (978) 683-7745. Guests should arrive roughly fifteen minutes early. 

This walking tour chronicles the underbelly of the city that is known for its quant New England charm. The historically accurate tour however tells the stories that are most often swept under the rug. Accused spy Silas Deane and tavern Wench Olive Cutter spin their interactive yarns in a way that is as scandalous as some of the stories. This tour is truly hands-on. Come and learn the scandals of some of history’s biggest names! 

Portsmouth Underbelly is performed by George Hosker-Bouley and Sarah Shanahan. George is the former artistic and executive director of the Prescott Park Arts Festival and an award-winning playwright who has more than 17 Spotlight Awards for his work. His latest play “The Gloucester House Boys”  was his 21st original work to be performed to standing room only audiences.  Sarah Shanahan is known for her broad portrayals of women on both sides of the fence. Sarah is also the winner and multiple nominee for Best Actress in a Musical for the Spotlight on the Arts Awards. She has performed throughout the Seacoast and beyond. The critics heralded Shanahan’s performance in “Parlor Games”.
