Celebrating it’s 10th season, The BLUEBARN’s Witching Hour is presenting its latest devised work with Sineaters: Medieval Forgiveness for Modern Times. Set in “a dirty punk bar you’ve probably seen before,” the show goes on a modern exploration of the Medieval practice of Sineating. The holy ritual consisted of placing crusts of bread on recently departed loved ones (the bread was said to absorb the sins of the deceased). The Sineater (usually a social outcast or outsider) would then come along, eat the bread, and absorb the sins, allowing the dead to proceed to heaven. Now the last Sineater on Earth is gathering humanity for “one last round of whiskey and salvation.” After a lengthy writing process, the show opened last weekend with Witching Hour veteran Shannon Jackson performing alongside newcomers Matthew Karasek, Mallory Freilich, Jackson Cottrell and Brendan Reilly. It will run through Dec. 21 at 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights.
