About This Show

Thirst: A Spell for Christabel retells Coleridge’s gothic story in an abandoned forest suffering from an apocalyptic drought. Christabel and her father, stubborn hold-outs in the dying woods, are visited by a mysterious and opportunistic woman who quickly transforms their quiet world. Soon they must choose between her frightening, seductive promises and the quickly diminishing safety of the life they’ve always known.

This adaptation of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem about a forest family seduced by a witchy woman is a stylistic and thematic washout.
