THE Unbinding, Wrong Shoes Theatre Company’s powerful and disturbing tale of persecution and witchcraft, returns to the Shoebox Theatre on, appropriately, the evening of Friday 13.

The play concerns the fortunes of four women accused of witchcraft. They are locked up together and await their sentence in the shadows. Scared and hungry, they don’t know who they can trust or who will survive.

Starring Louise Catherwood, Daniella Faircloth, Hannah Marquez and Rebecca Martin, the play is directed by Luke Marquez. As the play unfolds, the women explore their individual stories, conflicts, friendships and terrors. Combining dialogue, intense physical performances and unsettling masks, this is a raw and sometimes horrifying tale, heightened by a sense of claustrophobia, and music composed by Gary Bamford, which unwinds during the action onstage.

A taut, unsettling production, expect nudity, violence and strong language in this compelling drama about those who dare to stand out from the crowd, and the way they are treated with hatred and suspicion.

Devised from historical accounts of witches from Wiltshire and further afield, The Unbinding explores mob mentality and our insatiable need to punish those who are different. An intense performance featuring stark realism, horror, physical theatre and original new music.
