The Story of Witch

Based on a Jacobean myth from early 17th-century English literature, this story about life and human frailty is a fitting commentary that has endured.

Scratch (Played by Scott Hermes), a charming devil, comes to the company town of Edmonton to tempt a select few residents. Scratch is indeed well received by most, but to his amazement, one of his chosen few refuses his offer. It may be true that we have to give the Devil his due, but the village witch, Elizabeth Sawyer (played by Deborah Hull), is not interested in making a deal.

The rest of the characters revolve around Sir Arthur Banks (Played by Brett Robinson), who owns the village castle and is quite wealthy. His son Cuddy (Played by Michael Wilder Frazel) is obsessed with Morris dancing and will most likely fail to give his father an heir. This puts Sir Arthur Banks in a very uncomfortable position.

Frank Thorney (played by Jonathan Gastelo) is Sir Arthur Banks’s adopted son and wants to inherit the estate and fortune. But as with any good story, there must be secrets, and Frank Thorney has a few. Will his determination win out?

To round out the cast is Winnifred (Played by Brooke Tousley), the castle maid with desires of her own. She sees everyone’s secrets and knows everyone’s desires. 

Let’s not forget Scratch, with devilish charisma, he makes his deals. But who will get their wishes in the end?
