Sabbat

That is the title of the play currently running at the Dukes Theatre in Lancaster. I saw the play on Saturday night. My wife and I made an evening out of it. We went ofor a meal out before going on to the theatre.
The play is a high drama is about the Pendle witch trials that took place in August 1612. There are only four actors in the play but what a powerful performance. The round theatre was ideal for this as you could see the performers close up and really feel the emotive energy of the whole piece.

I have posted in the past a series about the Pendle witches and their final journey from Lancaster Castle to the scaffold. You can see this and follow the postings in chronological order in the series Lancaster Curiosity
