Open: 05/17/19- Close: 06/01/19 THE VIRTUOUS FALL OF THE GIRLS FROM OUR LADY OF SORROWS
Spicy Witch Productions’ seventh season will explore the vital relationship between speech and power with William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure in repertory with the World Premiere of The Virtuous Fall of the Girls from Our Lady of Sorrows by 2019 Writer-in-Residence Gina Femia. In the wake of the political and cultural tumults women have endured this year, SWP's season re-examines a frustratingly timeless question: even if you speak the truth, who will believe you?

The Virtuous Fall of the Girls from Our Lady of Sorrows, inspired by Shakespeare’s famous problem play, is a hilarious exploration of teenage revolution in the face of petty authoritarianism. Set in a Catholic girls’ school, Gina Femia's play recounts the ripple effects caused by one student's decision to produce M4M2, a controversial sequel to Measure for Measure.

Open: 05/23/19- Close: 06/08/19 TO SHE WHO WAITS
Meg and Jack were childhood sweethearts, who got married, and when their daughter, Hannah, was born, Meg stayed home with her, while Jack worked. They were happy. Then their church hired a new pastor. Flash forward … Jack is dead, and Meg is fighting the church she fled for custody of Hannah. Now that Meg is about to see Hannah for the first time in two years, the clock is already ticking. She will only have 12 visits to convince Hannah, who is openly hostile toward her, to leave the church she loves and its promise of salvation, to live with Meg -- the mother who left her behind.
