Witch Trial & Error

Witch Trial & Error was an original play created for a single performance at Greenhill School in Addison Texas. In his debut both as a playwright and director, Ricky McMurry directed his fellow high school students in this original fast-paced satire. The story follows three teenage girls navigating the frightening and brutal era of the Salem Witch Trials. Throughout the story they encounter intolerance, demonic magic, and other staples of typical teenage life. Religion and sexism are explored through both a historical and modern lens in this oddly heartwarming play about battling your inner demons… and literal demons.
