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. Jen Silverman boldly transforms 'The Witch of Edmonton,' the classic play by William Rowley and Thomas Dekker, using a contemporary lens to make the distant past strikingly relevant today. Silverman, an exciting new voice for the theatre, is a 2022 Guggenheim Fellow for Drama and Performance Art and a past Fellow of the New York Foundation for the Arts. Silverman's plays have earned the Helen Merrill Award, the Yale Drama Series Award, and the Lilly Award. *This show contains mature themes and strong language and is not recommended for children.
