A devious new comedy about scapegoats, souls, and a seductive stranger


by Jen Silverman | Directed by Rebecca Bradshaw
Oct. 16 – Nov. 15, 2020
Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA, 527 Tremont St.

An up-to-the-second riff on a 1621 Jacobean tragicomedy, this fiendishly funny new play follows an alluring devil named Scratch who arrives in the country village of Edmonton, promising to make the darkest dreams of its locals come true in exchange for their souls. But 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 spell worth casting” (The Hollywood Reporter) and “devilishly clever and deliciously laugh-packed” (StageSceneLA). Directing is Boston’s Rebecca Bradshaw.
