The work is based on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s last short story “Feathertop” About a New England witch who brings a scarecrow to life, and after admiring her splendid work, decides to send it into town, conjuring up mischief and mayhem. What she didn’t count on, was the absolute power of love, and a true heart.
