Kissing the Witch
UNIVERSITY OF ADELAIDE THEATRE GUILD presents
Kissing the Witch

10 Aug 2023 to 20 Aug 2023

“When a boy changes his life, it’s called an adventure. 
When a girl does the same, it’s only a fairy tale.”



 

A rich tapestry of passion, ambition and transformation, Kissing the Witch allows women to reclaim the stories and identities that have been used against them for centuries. 


Five classic tales – Beauty and the Beast, Donkeyskin, The Goose Girl, The Little Mermaid, and an enchanting new story – are seamlessly unspun and rewoven in unexpected ways.  Women young and old tell their own stories of love, lies and alliances – all with a determination to seize back the narrative.  

 

Kissing the Witch challenges what we think we know of traditional tales of ‘good’ and ‘evil’.  It explores the nuance in the fantastical, and the sensual in the magical; it reclaims the power of the Witch.

 

Kissing the Witch was written by acclaimed Irish author and playwright Emma Donoghue, best known for her novel Room.
