Women, Beware the Devil

About This Show

“This may be the biggest

But it is far from the first sacrifice I’ve made for this house

And I’m sure it won’t be the last

But don’t fret.

I’m ready.”

England, 1640.

A war is brewing.

Rumours are flying.

A household is in crisis.

…and the Devil’s having some fun.

For Lady Elizabeth nothing is more important than protecting her family’s legacy and their ancestral home. When that comes under threat, she elicits the help of Agnes, a young servant suspected of witchcraft.
But Agnes has dark dreams of her own for this house.

Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Spring Awakening, Patriots) directs this deadly new play of treachery and trickery by The Sunday Times Playwriting Award-winner Lulu Raczka (Antigone, Nothing).
