After careful consideration, the Huntington has made the difficult decision to postpone our 20-21 season, and we will therefore not be producing any shows on our stages through December of this year. LEARN MORE.

An up-to-the-second riff on a 1621 Jacobean tragicomedy, this fiendishly funny new play follows an alluring devil named Scratch who arrives in the country village of Edmonton, promising to make the darkest dreams of its locals come true in exchange for their souls. But when he meets Elizabeth Sawyer, she should be the easiest to convince – she’s an outcast, branded as a witch for years. So why does she resist Scratch’s deal? This subversive, inventive work by Jen Silverman (The Roommate) is “a spell worth casting” (The Hollywood Reporter) and “devilishly clever and deliciously laugh-packed” (StageSceneLA). Directing is Boston’s Rebecca Bradshaw.
