Kettlehead Studios is please to present Portland native Madison Mondeaux's local playwrighting and directing debut with a staged reading of "The Lindworm". This intense romantic drama follows Sasha, a professor of mythology and folklore, trapped in an abusive marriage. When his estranged best friend (and ex-boyfriend) returns to town, life becomes a delicate balancing act between appeasing his abusive wife and reconciling unresolved feelings for his friend. Not to mention The Witch, who approached him one day offering a solution to his problem. Sasha knows better than anyone that gifts from witches always come with a price, but when give the opportunity to change his story, will temptation outweighs consequence? Through the lens of a dark, modern fairytale, "The Lindworm" explores the complexities of love and violence, and delves into domestic violence as an unspoken issue facing members of the LGBTQ+ community today.
