Seven Stones to Find The Witch
Adapted by Kemuel DeMoville from Thomas Middleton's "The Witch"
Directed by Dahveed Bullis
Join us for this unique filmed theatrical experience.
We've adapted The Witch, a Jacobean drama by Thomas Middleton, into a postmodern deconstruction. The performances by SFCC students have been recorded, with the intention of incorporating social distancing into the thematic framework of the piece, rather than just having a Zoom performance, or similar.
The play has been broken down into eight scenes that incorporate elements of Thomas Middleton’s original work, alongside scenes that have been written specifically for the piece, compilations of King James’ writing on witchcraft, and transcripts from actual witch trials in the 1600s. The adjusted work has been retitled Seven Stones to Find the Witch. Each of the seven scenes (or “stones”) will lead the audience to the eighth stone that reveals the witch and her coven.
