Higher Powers: two short plays

Aidan Quinn, Audra McDonald, Tonya Pinkins and Geraldine Hughes star in two fantastical short plays. In John Patrick Shanley’s Banshee, an Irish sprite pays a teacher a visit and makes an out-of-this-world proposal. In Lynn Nottage’s Poof!, a woman’s words prove cosmically powerful.
