TO SUFFER A WITCH by Christopher Treagus Now AvailableTO SUFFER A WITCH by Christopher Treagus Now Available
by BWW News Desk - Feb 17, 2015

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of 'To Suffer a Witch,' Book 1 of the paranormal dark fantasy trilogy 'The Blackthorne Chronicles,' by Santa Rosa, California, author Christopher Treagus. Barking Rain Press also published Mr. Treagus's Jack the Ripper thriller, 'In the Autumn of the Unfortunates,' as well as his chupacabra horror novel, 'Building a Better Monster.' The Blackthorne Chronicles tells the story of the Salem witch trials through the eyes of Jacob Blackthorne, who falls under the thrall of one of the witches. It is 1692 and a plague of witches and dark magic has descended upon the village of Salem. When a court of Oyer and Terminer is called by the governor to bring the Guilty to trial, Judge Jacob Blackthorne and the Reverend Cotton Mather are tasked with discovering the cause for all of this evil. The trouble is, Jacob Blackthorne is part of the problem. Fifteen years ago, he was seduced by a witch named Abigail Colman. One night in the woods outside of Salem Village, she shared her secret with him: the power of the Sangreal-a magical elixir that forestalls the natural process of death... for a price. Now cursed with near-eternal youth and the loss of his soul, Jacob prays that he can yet find a path to salvation. Instead, he uncovers a conspiracy dating back to Biblical times. Ask for 'To Suffer A Witch: The Blackthorne Chronicles, Book 1' at your favorite bookstore, or buy it online at the Barking Rain Press website, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Powells, Waterstones, and many other Internet bookstores.

BWW Review: DOUBT: A PARABLE Is a Heart-Breaking, Challenging Tale at Garden TheatreBWW Review: DOUBT: A PARABLE Is a Heart-Breaking, Challenging Tale at Garden Theatre
by Matt Tamanini - Feb 16, 2015

Theatre production company Beth Marshall Presents' latest play at the Garden Theatre is an exceptionally challenging one; for artists and audiences alike. One would be safe to assume that with a title like DOUBT: A PARABLE the play will focus on the varying ways in which one can experience the emotion; and while that is true, on closer examination, the far more important aspect of the play's title comes after the colon; 'A PARABLE.' Beth Marshall's production of this 2004 Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning play is anchored by a four-person cast which gives uniformly stirring performances, but one in particular might ultimately undermine the larger lesson which playwright John Patrick Stanley was looking to teach.

BWW Reviews:  Playhouse Does the 'Time Warp' AgainBWW Reviews: Playhouse Does the 'Time Warp' Again
by Joseph Baker - Feb 1, 2015

It's an interesting and unintentional coincidence: PETER PAN, which wrapped up Playhouse on the Square's Holiday Season, offered the younger set its first taste of transvestism, with musically gifted actresses alternating in the role of 'Peter' (talk about the incipience of gender confusion); now, as the New Year has begun, the older set has its exposure with Jim Sharman and Richard O'Brien's THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. This isn't the first time Playhouse has allowed a cast and crew to indulge themselves in fishnet hose and makeup; I can recall previous performances of this Guilty pleasure with the remarkable Mark Chambers (anyone who ever saw him 'strut his stuff' is not likely to forget his performance - 'boomers' who 'time warped' in the aisles still talk about it). I imagine that everyone involved in this production dived headfirst into their costume fittings with all the giddy zeal of children glamming it up at Halloween. (more...)
