Synopsis: A romantic comedy about witches, arranged marriage and a war-ravaged soldier who wants to escape a world he finds irredeemably bleak. This acclaimed verse play, set in 15C England, was a hit in the UK and on Broadway. Thomas, the soldier, wants to be hanged, but the townsfolk are more focused on burning Jennet, a young woman they believe to be a witch. Thomas’ quest to die and Jennet’s to live bring them face to face with the hypocrisy and paranoia of the mob, as well as their new and growing love. Written in post-WWII 1949, its lively characters and themes resonate sharply today.

THE ROLES:
RICHARD, a clerk – 18-early 20s. A foundling with unexpected reserves of courage and ingenuity
THOMAS MENDIP, a discharged soldier – 30-40. Fights despair with wit and outrageously bad behaviour
ALIZON ELIOT – 17. Fresh from the convent, innocent but finds the strength to make brave choices
NICHOLAS DEVIZE – 20s. Driven by impulse and hormones
MARGARET DEVIZE, mother of Nicholas – 50-60. Comfortably domestic, unflappable – usually.
HUMPHREY DEVIZE, brother of Nicholas – 30s. Town Councillor, born to the role, uses it to wield power
HEBBLE TYSON, the Mayor – 50-60s. Plagued with post-nasal drip and a need to be respected
JENNET JOURDEMAYNE – 20-30. Faces a terrifying situation with humour, courage and honesty
THE CHAPLAIN – Schooled in a theology that fails him in the face of brutality and fear, longs to be a musician
EDWARD TAPPERCOOM, a Justice – 50-70. Pragmatic, sensual, has opinions on everything
MATTHEW SKIPPS – 60-70. The drunken rag-and-bone man who saves the day. A terrific cameo.
