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.

| | March 17, 2009
This adaptation of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem about a forest family seduced by a witchy woman is a stylistic and thematic washout.
