Play by ... tk
sez says -- overly long for the subject. And the subject is how people try and capture a little power for themselves: the witch makes claims about powers she doesn't really have to carve out a place for herself; people with power can abuse it, ie the govt official who comes to town to investigate reports of a witch; sexual attraction is power (no big surprise there); anger and false accusations can result in getting power for a moment--but the result of its use can't be controlled and may result in things unwanted; the power in a mother's love can trump all else..and so on ... anyway, it is an ok play--but not really tremendously interesting. The topic has been done better elsewhere.
mjc says: dragged on, unlike other readings I have enjoyed this play could benefit from actually being produced.
