The characters await death, having been sentenced for witchcraft. It is the late 1600s or early 1700s. Only the Calm Woman remains unmoved. On being questioned, she replies she will not hang. The Devil will look after his own. The others conclude she is indeed a witch-- and beg her to tell them how they too may gain Satan's protection. Only the girl protests-- and they set on her and kill her. But the Calm Woman then informs them she has not after all offered them any guarantee of safety. In a wild fury they set on her also, and her prophecy is fulfilled, she will not hang. A great success in England.

We used this play as a youth entry in a number of festivals - and won a couple against senior opposition.
The text is far enough removed from real life to be a real challenge for young actors, but with enough action to satisfy everyone.

With all of it's twists and turns, this show is an amazing opportunity for a great ensemble piece. We are preparing it for competition and cannot wait to see how greatly it makes my students shine.
