    One thought on “The Witching Hour and Other Plays by Nina Sadur”

    1. This book includes two one act plays, Go! and Red Heaven and two full length plays Pechorin: In Memoriam and The Witching Hour.This is a cruel, bleak, dark, grotesque and utterly alienated world, merging sadistic satire with the commonplace and the evil sides of folk life.In my opinion, well worth missing.
