“She will be stranglet to the death and burnt to ashes.”

The Scottish witch hunts—sanctioned by the state, fuelled by the church, fed by hysteria, and buried by history. The threat of the devil loomed, and women bore the brunt of the terror. PRICK reclaims a piece of the story of those “stranglet to the death and burnt to ashes.”

 

Inspired by the Witches of Scotland campaign to remember the folk who were victims of this terrible miscarriage of justice, PRICK traverses magic and memory, fact and fiction, past and present. Evocative. Poetic. Satirical.

Show runs from Tuesday the 16th of January to Saturday the 20th of January at 7:30pm
