Scapegoats. Witch Trials. Torture. Death.
17th Century England is no place for strange behaviour. Rising Puritan extremism and a resurgence of plague era isolationism has created an air of tension and fear. Caryl Churchill’s Vinegar Tom is a fascinating ‘play with music’, inspired by some of the works of Bertolt Brecht. It’s a witty, but ultimately dark piece, that examines the interplay of Gender and Power. No woman is safe. Hide your hats, hide your cats, lest you be named a witch.
