    Witchcraft! Murder! Madness! Bigamy! Lust! And a singing, dancing Devil Dog!

    REV Theatre Company returns to Laurel Hill Cemetery to present an immersive production of a Jacobean play that is part domestic tragedy, part rustic comedy and part horror story.

    Written in 1621, The Witch of Edmonton is a bloody and violent tragedy in the truest Jacobean tradition, and is based on the true story of a woman who was tried and executed for practicing witchcraft. Elizabeth Sawyer lives on the margins of Edmonton’s society; vulnerable, isolated and destitute, she is feared and persecuted by the community in which she lives. Sawyer, treated as a witch, takes revenge on her tormentors by enlisting the help of the devil in the guise of a dog who is wicked, seductive and diabolically entertaining.

    Lust, bigamy, revenge, madness, suicide and murder are all unleashed as the Devil hunts his prey through the town of Edmonton.
