“…part thriller, part revenge play and lots of comedy.”


“A dark and devious comedy…her plot is a cunning labyrinth”


About the show

A gruesome murder in a small town.  A female sheriff, a cocky young detective, and a university professor with a taste for younger men.  Multiple suspects, secret lives, and ancient magic.

The Belfry production is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between Indigenous and Ukrainian artists—a celebration of two unique worlds and cultures. The Slavic folktale of the supernatural Baba Yaga is the launching pad for a clever and witty exploration of female power in its many forms.
