400 years ago, Elizabeth Sawyer was tried and hanged for witchcraft. Now, Creation Theatre invites you to be her judge. Was Elizabeth Sawyer a witch who sold her soul to the devil or simply a lonely, mistreated woman? Was Satan himself at work in Edmonton or were its villagers responsible for their own cruelties and corruption?
Performing live online, digital theatre specialists Creation will stage the ‘crimes’ and punishment of Edmonton’s witch, based on a classic of early modern drama, written in 1621 by William Rowley, Thomas Dekker and John Ford. Newly interwoven with records of other historical witch trials, The Witch of Edmonton reveals the dangers of being an outsider in a place where to be different is to be condemned.
