FUSION Theatre Company Presents WITCH

“WITCH is utterly spellbinding... superb... intelligent.” —LA Daily News
A charming devil arrives in the quiet village of Edmonton to bargain for the souls of its residents in exchange for their darkest wishes. Elizabeth should be his easiest target, having been labeled a “witch” and cast out by the town, but her soul is not so readily bought. As the devil returns to convince her – and then returns again – unexpected passions flare, alliances are formed, and the village is forever changed.

An inventive retelling of a Jacobean drama, this sharp, subversive fable debates how much our souls are worth when hope is hard to come by.
FUSION’s production, starring Jacqueline Reid, John San Nicolas, Ryan Jason Cook, Paul Ford, Christine Grenier, and Josh Heard, is directed by Robb Sisneros.
Performances will be Thursdays & Fridays at 7 PM, Saturdays at 2 PM & 7 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM at FUSION | The Cell.
