The West Coast premiere of Witch by Jen Silverman, starring Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney, opened August 29.
The play, directed by Marti Lyons, is set nearly 400 years ago in 1621. It is inspired by William Rowley, Thomas Dekker, and John Ford’s Jacobean play The Witch of Edmonton, following the citizens of a small village where a woman is accused of selling her soul to the devil.
