"This powerful story, written by the late Jovanka Bach and directed and produced by Bach's husband of 28 years John Stark, transports the audience to an earlier time yet also reflects the undercurrents of today's political arena. While these days women face less violent yet relatable degradation, many still face obstacles and censure for having a sharp and honest tongue. Bach's insightful historical drama reflects the scary truisms of the socio-economic relationships of men and women in political power, regardless of the setting." More at ArtsBeatLA...

"Katharina Magdalena magnificently portrays Hannah Mulwray, opening up her heart and soul to allow us to see the real woman behind the accusations born in the mind of a man who cannot have her physically. As she fights for her life in a courtroom battle against the three men who will judge her, it is very apparent their Puritan beliefs will result in her demise. For while we now can sense why Hannah danced in the woods with young women to celebrate their femininity and power in a time when women were told to obey men and stay silent, there was no way she would be able to survive in such a repressed community."
