Scratchworks Theatre Company 'Hags: A Magical Extravaganza' - Barbican Theatre - Plymouth

Following their critically acclaimed productions of the Great Train Robbery and WOMANS Devon’s all female Scratchworks Theatre Company are back in Plymouth with their latest comedy theatre show ‘Hags’. In Bideford in 1682, the final witch trial in Britain took place. Three women were accused of witchcraft, tried and hanged.Now fast forward to the present day and name one female magician…pretty tricky. But tonight, three fearless females are climbing out of their boxes, shaking off the sequins and investigating what really happened in a small town in North Devon 300 years ago.Packed full of magic tricks, physical comedy and live music, our magiciennes explore the witch-hunt mania that swept the country and sent hundreds of innocent women to the gallows. With mind-blowing illusions, stupendous stunts and the occasional disappearing rabbit, ‘Hags’ sets the record straight for thousands of falsely accused women with all the joy, silliness & spectacle these three can muster.Hags is commissioned by Beaford’s Made in Devon Fund and supported by Arts Council England & Barbican Theatre Plymouth.Sat 14 Mar 7:30pmBarbican Theatre.
