The Poison Tree

Anna Cates

Published by Cyberpress

Large Mixed Cast
A journey from darkness to light!

Nazis, fairies, elves, a moth queen, and a dancing bear clash in this fantastical, historical morality play, The Poison Tree, alluding to Blake's famous poem

Two Hitler Youth penetrate the forbidden Black Forest, eat magic mushrooms, and alarm the Elf King, distrustful of mortals and enraged at the Fairy King's failure to guard his borders

Both lieges soon discover a graver threat

They must fell the accursed Poison Tree with a magic axe, requiring the Moth Queen's aid

Ultimately, only spiritual means will mend the breach separating parallel worlds
