BOOK NOW: STUDENT MATINEES FOR Witch
Mischief is afoot in the sleepy village of Edmonton and the fate of the world is at stake in this smart modern fable. When the emotionally conflicted son of the local lord and an ambitious newcomer come into conflict, help presents itself to both of them in the same guise—as the Devil himself. But while these two young men take advantage of the Devil’s bargain to accomplish their own questionable ends, someone else in town stands her ground—Elizabeth, an outcast whom everyone believes to be a witch.
Rising playwright Jen Silverman
boldly transforms this classic play by Jacobean playwrights William Rowley
, Thomas Dekker
and John Ford
, using a contemporary lens to make the machinations of the distant past strikingly relevant to today. Directed by Marti Lyons
(The Mystery of Love & Sex
) in the intimate Gillian Theatre, this wickedly funny, slyly subversive play will captivate you with the question: would you know what to ask for if the Devil came knocking on your door?
