VINEGAR TOM By Caryl Churchill
Brentwood Theatre May 2011
Set around the 17th Century witchcraft trials in England, this superb play centres around the young, unmarried and sexually provocative Alice and her alcoholic mother Joan. They, along with two other women, are accused of witchcraft through no wrong doing, but rather through their neighbours justifying their own misfortune. Are they Witches? Are they whores? Or are there darker forces at work? Maybe evil takes a different form, that of Vinegar Tom, Joan's cat; or maybe they are all victims of hysteria, persecution and fear.
