Additional Info

This exciting early play by an acclaimed Obie Award winning author was created in association with a British feminist theatre who requested a play about witches.

It tells the story of two farm women who are named as witches by a man whom they have spurned sexually. The connection between fear of female sexuality and witch hysteria is shown to be at the root of many of society's problems.
