Looking for a new play for Halloween?
It's the year 1713, in Andover, Essex County, Massachusetts. Mary Lacey and Mary Parker were hanged as witches. That much is fact.
But here our story flies off from history into a world of magic, murder, and comic mayhem. Flash forward to 2013 - teenage heroes struggle, with the help of a talking pig (or frog or cat if you prefer), to thwart the evil plans of a pair of bumbling witches.
Cast 16 + (or doubling possible)
40-45 mins - lots of opportunity for physical theatre.
Suitable for grades 6 upwards, or any EFL class.
Simple set (or as elaborate as you wish)
