29 Oct “The Witch of Edmonton” by William Rowley, Thomas Dekker, and John Ford
An unsettling tale of witchcraft, betrayal, and murder in a small town. Persecuted by her neighbors, Elizabeth Sawyer turns to the devil – who appears in the form of a black dog – for consolation and revenge. Once unleashed, the canine makes his own forays into the lives of the citizens of Edmonton.
