In a small 17th century New England town a children's game has terrifying consequences as allegations of witchcraft break out. Quickly caught up in an unstoppable flow of paranoia, accusation and manipulation, the community is consumed by a climate of suspicion where no person is safe from its neighbour.
This bold new production starring Charlie Condou (Coronation Street), as the witch hunte, Reverend Hale and Victoria Yeates (Call the Midwife), the falsely accused Elizabeth Prcotor, is directed by Douglas Rintoul, Artistic Director of the Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch, and brings together music and movement through a strong and ever-present cast.
This atmospheric staging of a theatre classic is co-produced with Sell A Door Theatre Company, in association with Les Theatres de la Ville de Luxembourg, and is a chilling reminder of the frailty of reason in the face of hysteria.
