The Salem Witch Orgasms

the sky is on fire
By Lauren Rekhelman
Directed By Laura Shearer
Orpheus, the world’s greatest musician, had a wife named Eurydice. Or so it goes. Set in a strange yet unsettlingly familiar underworld, the sky is on fire is a feminist re-imaging of the classic Orpheus and Eurydice myth. Equal parts funny, sad, and eerie, this play takes on questions of agency, healing, and the fragments of a too-short life.
