Afflicted: Daughters of Salem
by Laurie Brooks

In 1691 Puritan New England, fear and superstition were rampant. Singing, dancing and amusement of any kind was forbidden. The devil was everywhere. Five girls coming of age in
Salem Village, desperate for release of their thoughts and feelings, find an ally in Tituba, a slave who longs for freedom. Deep in the woods the girls make a pact and build a sisterhood. Then alliances are formed, promises made and broken, power taken.

Afflicted: Daughters of Salem tells the story of the Salem girls—Abigail Williams, the leader, Ann Putnam, Mercy Lewis, Mary Warren and Betty Parris, and the events that led up to the infamous Salem witch trials. This origin story examines how these teenage girls became accusers and caused 20 people to be put to death for witching.

I Have an Idea for a Play
Written by Jordan Resnick
Directed by Katie Arnold

In this Brechtian play about the ticking clock that is life, characters experience existential dread as they become aware of their own status as fictional. Distanced from the imaginary world of the play, the characters navigate themes of female empowerment, sexuality and student loans.

Doubled Bodies
Choreographed by Kristina Harris and Gabriel Mata

Doubled Bodies exposes narratives that are muted by heteronormative gender constructs. Harris and Mata upend expectations about female/male partnering, power dynamics and gendered aesthetics, drawing on in-depth research and their own individual and cultural identities.

Free, no tickets required. Click here.

1 Self-Sufficient Woman Baker
1 Nobleman in need of a Cook
1 Sweet Young Lady
1 Dashing Hero
Preheat to the year 1835. Mix the Baker and the Nobleman together until romance blossoms. For a little confusion, gently add the Sweet Young Lady into the mix. Sprinkle in a pinch of frustrated love, and then add a dash of Hero rushing in to save the day. Bake at 350 degrees for the length of one duel, or until ready to admit the truth. Serves them all right. Quadrille is delicious tale featuring romance, secret plots, good food, more secret plots, bad food, heroic duels, and plenty of perfectly prepared corn muffins. Bon appetit!
