Vinegar Tom 

By Caryl Churchill

Music By Helen Glavin


Set in a time when it’s dangerous to be a woman without a husband – or just a woman who’s different –  Vinegar Tom is a wild mash-up that blends a 17th-century witch hunt with modern musical numbers that cleverly connect this tale to how women’s bodies remain a battleground today.

The play, written in the 1970s by the much-acclaimed British playwright, leads us to question not only the historical persecution of “witches” over the ages, but why anyone persecutes anyone. In this work Churchill is at her best: raw, satirical, political, and mad as hell!
