'My mother is a witch and that I know to be true.'

An intimate and spellbinding telling of the true story of the notorious and bloody 16th century Pendle Witch trials, which led to the execution of 10 people, combining bold theatricality, haunting a capella hymn singing and striking dark humour. Great theatre, this subtly beautiful, richly atmospheric production has its own enchantment, not to be forgotten.

★★★★ 'Superb… pitch-perfect performances... chilling and heart-breaking, this is the best kind of history lesson.' The Scotsman

★★★★ 'Flawless.' The Stage
