Bell, Book and Candle at Greenwich Playhouse 8 Nov
Alces Productions presents Bell, Book and Candle , by John Van Druten, at the Greenwich Playhouse, in south London, from 8 Nov to 4 Dec 2011, directed by Mark Giesser.
Comedy about witchcraft and romance. It’s Christmas Eve, 1950 in Manhattan, but young witch Gillian Holroyd’s mood is more restless than festive. She wants something different this season, perhaps in the form of her attractive new tenant Shepherd Henderson. Problem is, he’s engaged to Gillian’s former school rival, and Gillian suspects she hasn’t got time to win him over before his New Year’s Eve wedding announcement. Unless, of course, she exercises her extraordinary powers to bind him with a spell. But that’s no challenge – or is it?
