The Kitchen Witches
By Caroline Smith
Winner of the 2005 Samuel French Canadian Playwrights Contest! This hilarious comedy follows Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle as they attempt to host a local access cooking show together, despite the fact that they've been rivals since high school. The insults—and food!—will fly as these two create a hit show that combines the best elements of Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer.
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French.
Auditions: Jan. 29, 30, 31
Performances: April 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15
