"Katie, a semi-successful chick lit author, is researching a non-fiction book about the Salem witch trials - a book her ex-husband manager assures her is a loser. Suddenly, she is thrust into the spotlight when an evangelical Christian group targets her last book. Katie finds herself in a modern day crucible as she has an affair with her publisher and deals with her sudden, unwanted celebrity.
We see flashbacks to the actual Salem Witch trials. And then, history and present day merge when John Proctor, Reverend Hale and Tituba show up to interact with Katie and give her advice on love, writing and character. But when seductive Abigail arrives, and won't leave, the fire-works are really going to start!
This world premiere probes the heart of hypocrisy, celebrity, and how listening to the past can bring havoc on your present, but maybe, just maybe, help you to navigate the future! "
