WITCH - an original historical drama presented by Circle of Spears Productions.
Thomas Latimer has accused his destitute neighbour Margery Scrope of witchcraft after tragedy hits his family. Is Margery really guilty - or does Latimer have a darker agenda? And what will magistrate Sir William Tyrell make of the case?
This is a play about witch trials that contains neither a trial nor any witchcraft. It focuses on the human story behind such accusations, so there are no familiars, broomsticks or devil-pacts - just people, and what they are capable of doing to each other. Based on a real witchcraft case from 1600s Lyme Regis, WITCH explores issues which are just as relevant today as they were back then. The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the cast and writer, and there will also be the opportunity to look at copies of the original trial records which inspired the show.
