Astoria: The Witch of Edmonton @ The Astorian
October 31, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
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…
