Tod is the new boy in town, a teenager whose family is always on the move. Infatuated with his sexy next door neighbor, he only succeeds in angering her athletic, beer-guzzling boyfriend and unintentionally attracting her precocious younger sister. His pathetic attempts at romance endear him to his other new neighbor, Sybil, a Woodstock leftover and presumed witch, and the two of them begin an off-kilter relationship. Sybil tends an herb garden, in the past a scene of secret tragedy and horror. And it is here, in the mysterious Garden of the Witch, that Tod discovers the difference between being a friend and just fitting in. The phenomenon of this play is that it combines spendid acting roles for teens with a funny, compasionate story for all ages. In the Garden of the Witch
