Cruel Clarissa    [Lab Activities]
Cruel Clarissa, a play by Susan Roether Zsigmond

This new play concerns Clarissa, a modern-day sorceress, who agrees to use her supernatural powers to help Barbara, an ambitious politician, win an important election.  When Barbara successfully attains political power and influence, she refuses to acknowledge her friend's help, thereby incurring Clarissa's wrath. The play is humorous, touching, and politically timely in a most subtle and engaging manner.
