    "She Fed the Devil" is smart and funny. Eppich-Harris's wry, dry wit is as bitter sweet as the berries Jessie fed the devil as a kid. In ten short minutes Jessie and the Devil go through sin, guilt, temptation, selflessness, selfishness, and self-care. It is like all of eternity can be decided in only ten minutes. The casting of this show and the Devil is very open to interpretation. Eppich-Harris gives enough room for nuance and subtext in this tight play, but there is always room for the Devil.

    The lesson of this play? Should you ever meet Satan, do not engage! A fun, irreverent short play perfect for any 10 minute festival.

    Too much fun!! That sneaky Satan. This short play is just delightful as it zips along with fast and razor sharp dialogue. I'm a sucker for plays with Biblical characters acting like 21st century people, and this play is one of my favorites.
