Candy House: For Sale by Witch, Sarah Katerina Smith (Festival Reading #6)
Real estate is a real witch!
Hansel and Gretel have won the day. The witch is dead. Now what? Well, now her sister Cassandra is stuck with the grim task of selling her house; a house made entirely out of candy with a reputation for child-slaughter. Cassandra, estranged from her sister after swearing off eating children, is quick to get the house sold so she can forever leave behind her family's despicable ways. Along with her real estate agent, Lewis, the odd pair attempt to show the house with little success, until a certain "Big, Bad" Wolf comes to the door with an offer; an offer that will make Cassandra question if she's really that all that different from her late sister. Is a fresh start the same as a happy ending? Can you really grieve someone who's hurt you? And how do we live with the "after" of someone else's happily ever after?

About the Festival:
Each summer at the end of July, we present a three-day event showcasing readings of student work from the Playwrights Lab. Normally, these eight readings are minimally staged at Mill Mountain Theatre's Waldron Stage for the general public and close to a dozen guest professional responders from all over the globe.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, Festival readings will be presented live online via Zoom (all times Eastern).
All Festival Readings are free and open to the public. But tickets will be limited.
Details for getting tickets:
1. After reserving a ticket, you will get an email with a confirmation of your reservation, but it won't include the Zoom link or event instructions.
