March 18-April 2 Bitch. (Perception. Reality. Execution.) Blue Barn Theatre, 614 S. 11th St. March 18-19 and April 1-2, 11 p.m. March 25-26, 7:30 p.m.; $10 facebook.com/bbwitchinghour “Bitch” is the zenith of contemptuous five-letter words. This eponymous production by the Blue Barn’s Witching Hour reconsiders the stories of rule breakers and alleged bitches Marie Antoinette, Mata Hari, Ann Askew and Mary Surratt, “four women executed in the face of hysteria, revolution, war, persecution and bad PR.” Were they bitches, or just women living outside the box? The foursome is forever emblazoned with big scarlet “B”s in the history books, but the Witching Hour asks its audience to revisit that history, considering reality and perception. Artistic Director Jenny Pool leads a strong cast to the sounds of original music from Amanda Miller.
