Latch your windows! Bolt your door! Beware of The Witch in 204! You know your property value has plummeted when a witch moves in next door! But, that’s not retired schoolteacher, Sylvie Goldberg’s only trouble. Sylvie’s hopes of living happily-ever-after with Eugene, the “otherworldly” gentleman of her dreams, soon dissipate when the witch next door, Bella, turns out to be Eugene’s mysterious former paramour, who proceeds to wreck havoc on Sylvie and Eugene’s wedding day as the uninvited guest. Scandal quickly ensues when Bella mistakes Sylvie’s neighbor, Evelyn Greenbaum, for Sylvie and attempts to poison Evelyn with a lethal brew of pills and booze. Eugene skips town endeavoring to escape Bella’s witchy wickedness and leaving Sylvie with a dire warning to “Beware of The Witch in 204.” The sequel to Barbara Pease Weber's popular play Seniors of the Sahara, The Witch in 204 is a modern day fairy tale for grownups with fond memories of being both thrilled and terrified by wicked witches, genies, wizards, ghosts and goblins in the fables of our youth.

Written by Barbara Pease Weber, it is her fourth play to premiere at Old Academy Players in East Falls and is a sequel to 'Seniors.'...I loved the comedy and the capers." - Chestnut Hill Local, Read More
"With THE WITCH IN 204 Weber weaves a bewitching tale of ageless romance and the magic of true love through the lives of those who have lived (seniors), which is entertaining, hilarious and, refreshing!" - Stage Magazine, Read More
