Sycorax
by Susan Gayle Todd

William Inge Memorial Theatre

Something Witchy This Way Comes

In a regional premiere, Susan Gayle Todd’s prequel to William Shakespeare’s The Tempest tells the poignant story of the mother of the “servant-monster” Caliban. This tragedy imagines the life of the witch Sycorax as an Algerian healer who rises to power only to be scapegoated by powerful men.

TW: This production includes inferences to physical and sexual abuse, female circumcision, and a scene of sexual violence. It is not appropriate for all audiences.
