From Page To Stage


Monday, October 22, 2018 6:30PM
Evanston Public Library

Hosted by Evanston Public Library | 1703 Orrington Ave, Evanston

In the world premiere play Witch by Jen Silverman at Writers Theatre, the Devil visits Elizabeth in the small town of Edmonton to offer her a deal—and her unexpected response puts the events of this smart modern fable into motion. Throughout history, humankind has been captivated by stories of temptation or torment by the Devil, who is presented by turns as charismatic, comedic and terrifying—sometimes all at once. As the weather turns colder and Halloween approaches, join us for this free From Page to Stage event as we delve into the history of the Devil as we know it, across cultures and contexts, to examine our fascination with the complex battle of good vs. evil. Seating is limited, RSVP is requested.

To purchase wheelchair seating, please contact the box office at 847-242-6000
