“Plenty women are withered to dust at my age. Dead in damp graves. But I’m as full of juice as an autumn bramble.”
A rich, poetic tale full of ambiguity and suspense, The Last Witch reimagines the true story of the alleged Witch of Dornoch. Could Janet Horne really cure beasts, summon the wind and charm fish out of the sea? Or was she simply able to make others think she could? Did she actually practise witchcraft? Or was she simply a free-thinking woman, ahead of her time?
From the writer of the acclaimed James Plays, Iron and Bold Girls, Rona Munro’s tense, passionate play is brought vividly to life in this thrilling, new revival in an exciting new collaboration between Pitlochry Festival Theatre and award-winning Firebrand.
