Jen Silverman’s Witch, a riff on the 17th-century fable The Witch of Edmonton, takes place in a sleepy town where a “middle management level” devil with a gift for enticing people to sell their souls in exchange for certain life-altering favors comes to call. While he easily snaps up the souls of two men through a slick bargain, he soon finds out that his most worthy opponent will not be easily bought. Elizabeth, the town’s outcast, also happens to be a woman of intelligence, experience and cynicism who will not be scammed. With wry wit and humor this fiercely feminist play skewers our centuries-long fight for humanity.
