SURVEYS THE PRAIRIE OF YOUR ROOM|
Dan Safer, a downtown maverick and the Artistic Director of Witness Relocation, returns to the stage as a lead performer in his work in Surveys the Prairie Of Your Room, a duet co-created and performed with leading WR company member Ae Andreas, featuring original music by OBIE Award-winning composer and longtime company collaborator Heather Christian.

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.

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.
