Extraordinary art must be tamed. Simon Grindberg is the world’s most illustrious children’s book writer and illustrator —but his next masterpiece is a decade overdue. Peter Chandler is a starving artist with unparalleled potential—but he doesn’t yet know his own value. The two men are thrown together by Clair Forlorni, an ambitious editor who hopes Peter’s youthful exuberance can unleash Simon’s aging genius for one final story. But creativity comes at a cost. The Stone Witch
is a wondrous, hopeful and heartbreaking new play where imagination runs wild. The world premiere production of The Stone Witch
was produced at The Berkshire Theatre Group in association with Darlene Kaplan Entertainment and Brierpatch Productions in 2016
Directed by Steve Zuckerman (Nuts, “Murphy Brown”) the three-member cast features Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years,” Lombardi) as Simon Grindberg, with Rupak Ginn (Shakespeare at Fenway, “Royal Pains”) as Peter Chandler, and Carolyn McCormick (Equus, “Law & Order”) as Clair Forlorni
