The Witch of Edmonton at Dalhousie University (Oct 15-18)

Readers in Atlantic Canada may be interested in a rare revival of The Witch of
(1621) by John Ford, Thomas Dekker and William Rowley. One of the
masterpieces of English domestic tragedy, the play depicts a bigamous marriage,
an old woman who turns to witchcraft, and a lovesick clown, in three storylines
linked by a sinister devil in the shape of a black dog.

The play will be performed by the graduating class of acting students at
Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, from October 15-18. The director is
Roberta Barker, professor of Theatre Studies at Dalhousie. Performances take
place in the David MacMurray Studio Theatre in the Dalhousie Arts Centre at
8.00. As seating is limited, pre-booking is strongly recommended.
