Witch of Edmonton: Presented by REV Theatre

Performances on Friday, July 12 & Saturday, July 13 at 8:00 PM

“Tis all one to be a witch as to be counted one” says the title character in The Witch of Edmonton, written in 1621 and based on the true story of a woman who was tried and executed for witchcraft.

REV Theatre Company - known to Laurel Hill audiences for their critically-acclaimed production of Hamlet and for the past six years their Philly Fringe favorite Death Is A Cabaret Ol’ Chum: A Graveyard Cabaret - will be back with their adaptation of this Jacobean play. Elizabeth Sawyer is persecuted by her Puritanical community because she is a poor and powerless woman. Sawyer, treated as a witch, takes revenge by enlisting the help of the devil in the guise of a black dog - her “familiar”. Lust, bigamy, revenge, madness, suicide and murder are all unleashed as the Devil hunts his prey through the town of Edmonton - and all with singing and dancing!

What the critics say about REV:

“The best theater buy of the season…not to be missed”. Associated Press

“REV’s production casts a superb spell” Philadelphia Inquirer

“Revving up classical theater with today’s vision”. New York Times

“Brilliant!…an unforgettable ride…It is easy to understand why no other company is capable of reinventing Shakespeare like REV…”. Stamford Advocate
