Witchfinder

Phoenix Players is a local amateur dramatics group and we are currently ramping up rehearsals in preparation for our next musical...Witchfinder.  
 
Picture the scene - It's 1612 and Jacobean England is still reeling from the Gunpowder Plot of several years earlier and the implications it has for the people and more importantly, the King; a king obsessed by demonology and fearful of those who do not practice the faith of the state. Against this backdrop, Witchfinder introduces the story of two young lovers from different classes, backgrounds and worlds, thrust together in a melting pot of politics and suspicion, fuelled by fear and an over zealous desire to hunt down the evildoers - whether they exist or not. Prejudice, power, love and honour all vie for supremacy in both the corridors of power in London and the simple village life of Pendle in Lancashire, as they are pitted against each other in a struggle for truth - and survival.
 
The show will be performed at the Edward Alleyn Theatre, Dulwich College on October 24th (7.30pm), 25th (7.30pm) and 26th (2.30pm and 7.30pm).  Tickets can be purchased online here www.phoenixplayers.org.uk or on the door.  We'd love to see you there
