A production by Out of Joint/Watford Palace Theatre/Arcola Theatre/Eastern Angles.  The Public Hall is delighted to be one of just four venues in Essex chosen to host this exciting national tour.

Walkern, 1712.  After decades free from witch hunts, ‘cunning woman’ Jane Wenham is blamed for a tragic death – and charged with witchcraft.  A terrifying ordeal begins, as the village is torn between those who want to save her life and those who claim to want to save her soul.  Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s beautiful, throat-catching new play is alive with the mysteries of nature, sex and the supernatural.  This production contains strong language and sexual content.

Tickets available in advance from the Information Centre, Town Hall, Newland Street, Witham.
