If there’s one thing that I can tell you about New York City after living in Brooklyn for thirty years, it’s that the Big Apple can be one hell of a scary place. The good news? It just got a little bit scarier. Read on for details.
According to Deadline, Chloe Sevigny will play Abigail Williams in Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s new play Abigail/1702, which will premiere at New York Stage and Film this summer. The David Esbjornson-directed production will run June 27-July 8.
The play is a supernatural suspense thriller set 10 years after the infamous Salem witch trials. Believing herself responsible for the deaths of 20 innocent people, Abigail is now living in Boston under an assumed name, caring for the sick, and struggling to atone for her sins — both the ones history remembers her for and the darker ones in her heart. When she starts to fall in love with a young sailor in her care, a chilling, diabolical figure from Abigail’s past comes calling…and demands her soul as recompense for her crimes, sending the woman on one final, terror-filled quest for redemption back into the dark, haunted woods of Salem.
