Walkern, 1712. England has been free from witch-hunts for decades until Jane Wenham is blamed for a tragic death and charged with witchcraft. A terrifying ordeal begins, as the village is torn between those who want to save Jane’s life and those who claim they want to save her soul.
Inspired by events in a Hertfordshire village, the play explores sex and society’s hunger to find and create witches.
Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s Jane Wenham: The Witch of Walkern premiered at Watford Palace Theatre before going on UK tour in September 2015, in an Out of Joint, Watford Palace Theatre and Arcola Theatre co-production, in association with Eastern Angles.
