CAPTURING WITCHES: HISTORIES, STORIES, IMAGES
400 YEARS AFTER THE LANCASHIRE WITCHES
LANCASTER UNIVERSITY 2012
Birds exploding from pies, amputated hands, greyhounds that turn into women, and gibes about Lancaster wine, Heywood and Brome’s hugely entertaining The Late Lancashire Witches is coming home for a one-off performance at Lancaster Castle on Friday 17th August.
This madcap play tells the story of a Lancashire community turned upside-down by the mischief of local witches and was a sell-out success during its original run in 1634.
Please come and join us in the spectacular surroundings of the Castle for a rough-and-ready reading of this rarely performed play. See the magic! Touch the history! Hear the bagpipe!
For further information about this performance (or if you would like to get involved in any way) please contact the play’s director, Dr Eleanor Rycroft.
