The Desert Rose Playhouse presents The Sugar Witch by Nathan Sanders.
Thursday evening's performance is at 7:00 PM and Sunday's matinee is at 2:00 PM.
An old Florida family lives under an ancient curse. The surviving members of the town’s founding family have reached the end of their rope. Just when things can’t possibly get any worse, tragedy strikes as a mysterious and brutal murder takes place. The crime places the clan in grave danger as the last in a long line of folk-tale witches attempts to end the curse placed on their heads by the dying words of her very own grandmother.
Dark family secrets are revealed, and unusual passions are ignited as the family confronts madness, truth and the destructive legacy of racism as the spirits of the dead walk the dark swamp, haunting the hearts of all who reside there. This is a dark, Southern Gothic play that will linger in the minds of the audience long after the curtain falls.
