EVENT: Cherubin by Rebecca Tourino Collinsworth
DATES: April 11 - 13, 2019
Bring me my son or this storm will kill you all.
Cora, a midwife and herbalist, is in the wrong place at the wrong time. In search of her long-lost son, Cora arrives in a Puritan settlement in 1652 during the most destructive storm in a century. When she's thrown in jail under suspicion of witchcraft, she demands to see her child--a man the settlers call the Monster of Connecticut. Instead, she meets Miranda, a Puritan on the verge of childbirth, sent in to extract a confession and save Cora's soul. But neither Cora nor Miranda is exactly what she seems.
In lively conversation with THE TEMPEST, CHERUBIN takes on freedom, illusion, and agency through two of Shakespeares most under-explored characters.
