A Modern Twist on the Classic American Road Story
lands our teenage Dorothy and her house in Munchkinland. Right on top of a wicked witch. Her phone won't work, her dog is scared, and she's desperate to get home to what little family she has left. But the town's residents are gleefully celebrating Dorothy's powers as the fabled Witch Slayer. When Glinda and the munchkins
can't convince her to stick around and be their new hero, they send her off on the road of yellow brick wearing magical boots
soaked in the red blood of the slain witch. A favor from the fabled all-powerful Wizard
will be her only chance to get out of Oz.
Unsure about her path forward, Dorothy teams up with a one-day-old Scarecrow, a heartbroken Tin Woodsman, and the Cowardly Lion.
Her boots, and their friendships, guard against lots of danger on their way to the Emerald City. But the Wizard will ask the Witch Slayer to live up to her violent and vengeful new name in exchange for a return ticket to her old life. If she can get home, Kansas may never be the same.
"Very much in sync with the intensity and darkness of the original story... the right mix of vulnerability and resilience."
