Sabbat: The Trials of the Pendle Witches, The Dukes, Lancaster
By Richard Shannon
Directed by Amy Leach
Good Friday 1612. High on a hill in the wild and lawless
area of Pendle, a secret meeting is held at Malkin Tower.
By the end of the year, most of those present have been
sentenced to death at Lancaster Castle – hanged for the
crime of witchcraft.
400 years later and the story of The Lancashire Witches is
as fascinating as ever. After playing to record breaking
audiences in Spring 2009, The Dukes is reviving the
production to commemorate the anniversary of the
county’s famous witch trials. Suitable for children 12 years
and over accompanied by an adult.
Variable start times.
After playing in The Round at The Dukes, Sabbat will be
touring in Lancashire and beyond. For more information
This production runs from 7th June.
