Before there was “Bewitched,” before “Wicked” and “Harry Potter,” there was “Bell, Book and Candle.” The play by John Van Druten is a celebration of being human, in all its messiness and disarray. Van Druten wrote the play in 1950, a time in America when conformity was cherished and “otherness” was considered a dangerous prospect. Into this environment, he places Gillian Holroyd, a woman who embodies the spirit of otherness. As a witch, Gillian has complete power over her own world, and can craft it to her specifications. However, the one element she can’t control is that sense of otherness, and it is her need to join the outside world that gives life to the play.
