Scratchworks Theatre Company’s Hags: A Magical Extravaganza

Friday, October 28

Share:

In Bideford in 1682, the final witch trial in Britain took place. Three women were accused of witchcraft, tried & 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 & 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.

This is a Pay What You Decide event which means you choose what the show is worth to you! You can decide what you would like to pay now by adding a ticket with a value to your cart, or you can pay after you have seen the show at Barbican Theatre (cash or card). Looking around at other events going on in the city, we estimate that 1 ticket to similar events would cost £14. There is no ‘right’ answer, we are not attempting to lead you to a specific figure. You can pay this suggested amount, less than this or more than this. You can even pay £0 for your ticket.

Scratchworks Theatre Company is made up of three women who create highly visual, playful theatre from scratch. Founded in Exeter in 2013, we share a passion for creating original stories, blending physical comedy, puppetry and live music to entertain and inspire our audience. www.scratchworkstheatre.com
