85% of executed witches were women! Why? The brutal truth of the witch hunts in Scotland, told with humour and empathy. Be prepared to laugh and cry as you gain a shocking insight into the untold stories of ordinary women (and some men) caught up in a whirlwind of politics and the religious repression of old magic. Performed in The Lost Close, where the ominous underground ambience adds real atmosphere to a truly powerful storytelling experience.
