The Lavender Spell
Presented by Dreams of Hope
The Fey, the world of the witches, is a world without bodies or divisions, without race, gender, or class. Powerful magic forces have torn a hole in the fabric of this world, leaving it vulnerable to the mortal realm. A young witch stands trial. Can they explain what led to this disaster, and why they cast the Lavender Spell?
In this magical dramedy, join the adventure of a young witch and a high school Gay-Straight Alliance as they try to create a better world at the risk of destroying two. Can they learn the true cost of power before it’s too late?
What happens when the members of a high school Gay-Straight Alliance are given magic powers? When do good intentions turn bad? What is the cost of power?
Dreams of Hope will be collecting personal care and hygiene products at all shows, to be contributed to Cathy’s Closet at the Pittsburgh GLCC. Cathy’s Closet distributes personal care items to neighbors in need. Items include soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. We are asking everyone attending a show to please bring an item – unscented if possible – for the drive.
