The Butcher of Baraboo

By Marisa Wegrzyn

Directed by Kristin Forde

Cast: Heather Abney, Stephanie Robey, Peggy Rosin, Carl Sirotzki, Sarah Whelan

The Baraboo butcher's husband mysteriously disappears. Everyone in her family has a motive--the drug-taker, the lesbian, the cop, the former lover, the sister-in-law with six children. But is anyone truly bloodthirsty? Dark secrets underlie constant hilarity and superficial peace. A comedy-drama about the choices women make.

"'Baraboo' is the kind of play in which every character at some point confesses a dramatic secret, and part of the fun is trying to guess what it will be."
-- Jason Zinoman, New York Times

"“Baraboo” plays out as if Wegrzyn mugged the Brothers Grimm at a bus stop somewhere outside Milwaukee.' -- James Herbert, San Diego News

"Marisa Wegrzyn is a new voice worth following."
-- Martha Wade Steketee, Aisle Say (Chicago)
