Mischief is afoot in the sleepy village of Edmonton, and the fate of the world is at stake in this funny modern fable. When the emotionally conflicted son of the local lord and an ambitious newcomer come into conflict, help presents itself to both in the same guise: as the Devil himself. But while these 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.
WHO SHOULD SEE THIS SHOW: From celebrated playwright and novelist Jen Silverman comes this fresh, funny, and relevant interpretation of a classic text. Taking a play written in 1621 and making it feel like it was written in 2022 is no small feat, but making it equal parts charming, moving, and laugh out loud funny is incredible. Examining how men and women each view ambition, this is a play for anyone who feels misunderstood and ostracized for being who they are and for those who love to find the contemporary in the classic in true Warehouse fashion. If you loved how fresh the storytelling of THE CRUCIBLE felt combined with the playfulness of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, this show will be for you.
