A devious new comedy about one woman’s deal with the devil

Witch

by Jen Silverman | Directed by Rebecca Bradshaw
October 15 - November 14, 2021
The Huntington Calderwood/BCA, 527 Tremont St.

This fiendishly funny new play follows an alluring devil named Scratch as he arrives in the country village of Edmonton, and he promises to make the darkest dreams of its locals come true in exchange for their souls. When he meets Elizabeth Sawyer, she should be the easiest to convince — she’s an outcast, branded as a witch for years. So why does she resist Scratch’s deal? This subversive, inventive work by Jen Silverman (The Roommate) is a free adaptation of a 1621 Jacobean comedy recreated with a modern sensibility, and is “devilishly clever and deliciously laugh-packed” (StageSceneLA). Directing is Boston’s Rebecca Bradshaw.
