Hags: A Magical Extravaganza

Scratchworks Theatre Company

Scratchworks Theatre bring laughter, music and magic to ‘Hags’, their exploration of the persecution of women in the seventeenth century

‘Hags’ explores the witch-hunt mania that swept through 17th century England and sent hundreds of innocent women to the gallows, packed full of magic tricks, physical comedy & live music.

In Bideford in 1682, the final witch trial in England took place. Three women were accused of witchcraft, tried & hanged. Now fast forward to the present day and name one female magician…pretty tricky.

But tonight, three fearless females are climbing out of their boxes, shaking off the sequins and investigating what really happened in a small town in North Devon 340 years ago. With mind-blowing illusions, stupendous stunts and the occasional disappearing rabbit, ‘Hags’ sets the record straight for thousands of falsely accused women with all the joy, silliness & spectacle these three magicians can muster.
