Those Women are in the press! Theatrius reviewed Those Women Production’s latest fully staged show, the new drama Witch Hunt, which focuses on the origins and untold stories behind the Salem witch panic.
“The question of how to tell an unrecorded story plagues artists and historians alike. At Salem’s notorious trials, Tituba was the first to confess to practicing witchcraft—but we know little else about her. In Arthur Miller’s classic “The Crucible,” she appears as a victim of the pilgrims’ manipulation, but Lashof portrays her as the master of her own fate.” – Fritz Mad’Laine, Theatrius
“For decades, Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’ has defined the Salem Witch Trials. Miller’s 50s play uses accusations of “witchcraft” to fight McCarthyism. But Miller centers his story on John Proctor, a wealthy white landowner. In ‘Witch Hunt,’ Carol Lashof smartly focuses on the actual victims: women, particularly indigenous women.” – Jordan Freed, Theatrius
