The Devil, The Witch, and The Blacksmith
adapted for the stage by
Amy Canfield & Kevin Dedes
from Nikolai Gogol’s classic short story
'The Night Before Christmas.'
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the small Ukrainian village of Dikanka, visions of food and caroling and beer and love danced in everyone's heads. The Devil, of course, had other plans. Vakula, the town blacksmith, has humiliated His Evilness for the last time! As revenge, the Devil will steal the moon and unleash a blinding snowstorm, stopping at nothing to ruin Vakula’s chance to win the beautiful and conceited Oksana. To make matters worse, Vakula’s mother, the town witch and comforter of half the town’s menfolk, along with Oksana’s wealthy Cossack father, get in on the action and mischief abounds! Gogol's masterful tale of magic and farce in a sleepy Ukranian village on Christmas Eve makes for a joyful holiday treat!
