May 17, 2013 - "Abigail/1702"
The thrilling next chapter of a theatrical legend by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, writer for Glee
Whatever happened to Abigail Williams? It's 1702, a decade after The Crucible's infamous seductress danced with the devil in Salem. Now, the devil returns for a visit, the blood on the gallows is dry, and Abigail hides behind a changed name in a new town. Imagining the destiny of the immortal stage villian who cried "Witch!," this suspenseful drama reveals the accuser's unforeseen fate.
For tickets or info, contact Kari Shaffer at email@example.com.
Tickets for these performances are $22 and come with a FREE companion ticket.
