Darla Belleford is just three days away from her 21st birthday. Oh, and she's a witch! Will the help of Winston (her family cat), Sherry (her grandmother), Barb (her mother) and the all powerful goddess, the MotherWitch, be enough to induct Darla into the family coven? MotherWitch tells the story of three generations of black women who share an ancestral power that helps, hinders, and brings complexity to their family dynamic.
MotherWitch played as part of UT New Theater, curated by Steven Dietz and Liz Engelman. It ran in repertory with Milton, MI by Paz Pardo and Loverboy by Drew Paryzer.
