Caryl Churchill's Vinegar Tom

Thursday, November 9, 2017 to Sunday, November 19, 2017

This exciting early play by 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 17th century rural England, it has a contemporary feel with a riot grrl attitude and includes punk rock-influenced 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 (aka persecution of "the other") is shown to be the lethal source of many of society's problems, then and now.
