Philly Theatre Week - Abigail 1702 / A Twice Told Tale - A Regional Premiere

In this tale of New England witchery, Abigail/1702 is ten years after the harrowing and tragic events of the Salem witch trials. Abigail Williams—the lead accuser who sent twenty people to their doom as a young girl—now lives under an assumed name on the outskirts of Boston, quietly striving to atone for her sins. When a handsome stranger arrives claiming to be a sailor in need, Abigail takes him in, and long-dormant passions awaken within her. Love starts to grow between the two—an unlikely flower cracking through salty earth. But their contentment is short-lived, for someone else is coming for Abigail, someone who has been looking for her since she danced in the weird woods of Salem. The Devil is demanding Abigail’s soul, and a debt will be paid—but first, Abigail must make peace with the woman she most wronged.

“Aguirre-Sacasa’s skillful expression of religion and depiction of a woman’s struggle for her soul is mesmerizing.”

“ABIGAIL/1702 is literary brain food…not so much a sequel to The Crucible, but instead a unique retelling of Faust…full of heart and conviction.”

Written by Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa, Directed By Josh Samors, Artistic Director Ray Croce
