Every woman may be called ‘witch’ by a man,
For every man will find unjust reason.’
Edinburgh is gripped by the witch-craze.
Agnes Sampson, falsely accused, awaits her execution.
And the Devil waits in the shadows.
A graphic, haunting tale, The Witch’s Mark tells the true story of one woman’s resistance against the dark forces determined to destroy her. Based on historical and contemporary accounts of the Scottish witch trials, The Witch’s Mark blends contemporary storytelling with Shakespearian tragedy.
Straight from a sell-out run at VAULT Festival 2017, Celeste Markwell gives a ‘gritty and captivating performance’ (West End Wilma). The Witch’s Mark is written and directed by award-winning playwright Timothy N. Evers.
Winner of Festival Spirit Award 2017 at VAULT Festival, The Witch’s Mark is brought to life by Over The Limit and forms part of their Celtic Season currently touring the UK.
