Special Offer: Charlotte Conservatory Launches with WITCH

Check Out the Special Offer Below

Mischief bubbles in the sleepy village of Edmonton, and the fate of the world is at stake in this razor-sharp, bruisingly funny, and devastating new play. As wealthy landowner Arthur Banks contemplates his legacy, those around him vie for their piece-of-the-pie. Desires are made manifest with the help of a charming devil, a shape-shifting merchant of souls who has a lot to learn about his own humanity. Playwright Jen Silverman boldly transforms the classic play The Witch of Edmonton into a contemporary referendum on the question of whether we should make the most of our suffering world or simply start over.

Running Time: 90 minutes. Ages 15+ for adult content.

Directed by Charlotte-native and current Associate Artistic Director at San Diego's Cygnet Theatre, Rob Lutfy. Lutfy returns to lead the Conservatory in its first production. The show features actors Audrey Deitz, Stephen Kaliski, Ron McClelland, Jeremy DeCarlos, Dominic Weaver, and Savannah Deal.

Design Team features Thomas Burch (scenic, UNCC), Robyn Warfield (lighting, Children's Theatre), Colin Harden (sound, UNCSA), and Davita Galloway (costumes, TDG).

"Raging, hopeful, weeping: No matter how you leave Witch, you won't leave unscathed." - Windy City Times

"The playwright's ear for patterns of speech, and the halting language of longing, is marvelous here..." - Chicago Sun Times

"In her adaptation of this little-known Jacobean drama, Silverman's brought new life to an old story from four centuries ago. With just a few twists, the elimination of several superfluous characters and by updating the language to today's vernacular, the playwright has created a mesmerizing one-act drama that's filled with unexpected humor and feels as contemporary in theme as today's headlines." - Chicago Theatre Review
