This exciting early play by an acclaimed Obie Award winning author Caryl Churchill was created in association with a British feminist theater company who requested a play about witches. Although Vinegar Tom is set in the 16th or 17th century in rural England, it has a contemporary feel and includes songs. It tells the story of two farm women who are named as witches by a man whom they have spurned sexually. The connection between fear of female sexuality and witch hysteria is shown to be at the root of many of society's problems.
