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.
Rising playwright Jen Silverman boldly transforms this classic Jacobean play, using a contemporary lens to make the machinations of the distant past strikingly relevant to today. Directed by COS Theatre Major Haley Wallace in an intimate setting on the COS Theatre stage, this wickedly funny, slyly subversive play is intended for mature audiences.
RUNNING TIME: 115 minutes with no intermission
