The Sugar Witch

Nathan Sanders’ eerily potent Southern comic drama The Sugar Witch, a dark, surprisingly engrossing story of a cursed Florida family that fluidly delves into matters of legacy, loss, sexuality and racial injustice, receives a solid local premiere at the Dayton Theatre Guild, 430 Wayne Ave. Authentically directed by Doug Lloyd and marvelously designed by Blake Senseman, The Sugar Witch is led by the wonderful Catherine A. Collins as titular conjurer Annabelle, who will stop at nothing to protect the helpless Sisser Bean (Sarah Caplan, completely chilling at the end of Act 1) and her devoted brother Moses Bean (Nicklaus Moberg). Chris Harmon as Hank Hartley, Lynn Kesson as Ruth Ann Meeks and the dynamic Dave Nickel as volatile Granddaddy Meeks are equally strong. Performances continue Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 5 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10-$17. Call (937) 278-5993 or visit www.DaytonTheatreGuild.org.
