The Great Mesmerizer, an insightful stage hypnotist, is pressured by his manager to add a stereotypical “lovely assistant” to spice up his show. But the zippy, witty woman he hires is anything but a stereotype. As their relationship morphs into a provocatively strange romance, their blossoming love is suddenly threatened after one fateful night trapped together in their motel room during an intense snowstorm…
Inspired by the Bronte sisters' epic romance novels, The Maid & The Mesmerizer follows the volatile ups-and-downs of a fiery love affair—a sometimes funny, sometimes devastating play that explores the deep trust and safety that can blossom between romantic partners…and how unexpectedly that trust can be shattered.
*The play includes intense and challenging conversations about sex, rape, and consent.
