Attached: A virtual reading presented by An Other Theater Company, on their website by tomorrow March 6. This new play from Chelsea Hickman, the playwright who brought you SAFE and SAFE, A Christmas Story, is a new story about femininity, magic, and the dangers of choosing what is ‘right’ over what is right. Set in 1600s England, Tethered tells the story of a future farm woman, Margaret, and her fascination with her new neighbor, Sileas Fletcher. Sileas offers her services as a healer and midwife, but Margaret has already chosen her Gossips: Mrs. Mary Wallace, Mrs. Elizabeth Gibson and Mrs. Alice Adams. The Gossips warn Margaret to beware of the Fletcher bloodline, as they come from a long line of witches. The blood cools when Margaret’s husband does not return home after delivering crops to a nearby village. And Margaret isn’t quite sure that’s such a bad thing. www.unautrethéâ
