Witch by Jen Silverman
directed by Rob Lutfy
Mischief bubbles in the sleepy village of Edmonton, and the fate of the world is at stake in this razor-sharp, bruisingly funny, and devastating new play. As wealthy landowner Arthur Banks contemplates his legacy, those around him vie for their piece-of-the-pie. Desires are made manifest with the help of a charming devil, a shape-shifting merchant of souls who has a lot to learn about his own humanity. Playwright Jen Silverman boldly transforms the classic play Witch Of Edmonton into a contemporary referendum on the question of whether we should make the most of our suffering world or simply start over.
