ABOUT THE WITCH OF EDMONTON

“Some call me ‘witch’, and being ignorant of myself they go about to teach me how to be one.”
- Elizabeth Sawyer, The Witch of Edmonton

The Witch of Edmonton is an unnerving tragicomedy inspired by the true story of Elizabeth Sawyer, a woman accused of witchcraft during the reign of James I. Mistreated by her neighbors and abandoned by her community, Elizabeth turns to supernatural powers to aid her in her revenge against her tormentors. Though they may at first appear virtuous, everyone in this small town has something to hide and Elizabeth has just the thing to sniff them out...

Join us for a thrilling, contemporary rendition of the play, complete with games to interact and drink along with the people of Edmonton. Costumes welcome!

PERFORMANCE DETAILS

Join us at the Plaxall Gallery in Long Island City for an immersive performance in and around two Halloween-inspired art shows, presented in partnership with Long Island City Artists. Join us at 7pm to enjoy the gallery and some pre-show entertainment, grab a beverage, and strut your most ghoulish attire before the performance begins at 7:30pm.

ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCES

You can also join us on Halloween in the Studio Bar at The Astorian at 7:30pm for a festive evening featuring games, drinks, delicious food, and other surprises. Come early to enjoy the Astorian’s signature craft cocktails and internationally-inspired comfort food, or purchase a VIP seat to enter the Studio Bar early and have a meal while you enjoy exclusive pre-show entertainment!
