The Witchfinder's Sister

A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch production

The Witchfinder’s Sister

by Beth Underdown

Adapted for the stage by Vickie Donoghue

The world premiere of a chilling and creepy tale of Essex witch hunts

Essex, 1645. Blood runs cold with dread.

After the tragic death of her husband, Alice Hopkins heads to Manningtree, the small town she grew up in, home to her brother, and childhood secrets…

But there’s a new darkness in town, as rumours of witchcraft abound. Alice discovers her brother much changed, as a reign of hysterical terror spreads.

Alice begins a desperate race to reveal what’s compelling the obsessively cruel Witchfinder General, before more innocent women are found guilty…

This spellbinding and haunting historical thriller by Beth Underdown was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick, and is adapted for the stage by award nominated playwright Vickie Donoghue.

Part of Essex on Stage, following the recent successes of David Eldridge’s In Basildon, Sadie Hasler’s Stiletto Beach, Luke Norris’ So Here We Are, and this summer’s premiere of Douglas Rintoul’s new musical Love Letters.
