An engaging performance about a dark part of Scottish women's history with the right amount of humour to stop it becoming macabre. An atmospheric and appropriate venue that supports the imagination and Natalie's performance. Go along to be entertained and educated.

Would definitely recommend this show!! Natalie didn’t just deliver a powerful true story but a meaningful message about prejudice and how a witch trial isn’t isolated to the history books. She took it beyond a tourist attraction and turned it into a true historical analysis; well-researched and still riveting!

Consumate story telling and acting skills make this fascinating show a compelling watch. These people's stories deserve to be told, Natalie handles her often graphic and disturbing material with warmth, sincerity and some humour so that we can really appreciate and understand what happened to 'witches' and how the resonance of the prejudice that caused the terror of those times still echoes around us. Can't recommend it highly enough!

This is a very well delivered storytelling of the facts and history that women experienced during the witch hunting ages. It is told with a heartfelt passion and I found it really interesting. I was apprehensive when I went into the underground location however the lady put me at ease immediately.

A not to be missed first class informative and entertaining show. The stories Natalie told were totally enthralling amidst the spooky under ground venue. She slickly transformed into various characters. The research and the delivery of this piece makes this a five star show !

An incredibly interesting show in a great setting with horror, blood, gore and comedy. Natalie is a fantastic performer who has a clear passion for the stories she is telling. The show has been incredibly well written and researched and keeps the audience engrossed from start to finish. I would encourage everyone to go and see Witch? Women in Shadow and Flame !
