Every woman may be called â€˜witchâ€™ by a man,
For every man will find unjust reason.
Edinburgh is gripped by the witch-craze.
Agnes Sampson, falsely accused, awaits her execution.
And the Devil waits in the shadows.
A graphic, haunting tale, The Witchâ€™s Mark tells the true story of one womanâ€™s resistance against the dark forces determined to destroy her. Based on historical and contemporary accounts of the Scottish witch trials, The Witchâ€™s Mark blends contemporary storytelling with Shakespearian tragedy.
Straight from a sell-out run at VAULT Festival 2017, Celeste Markwell gives a â€˜gritty and captivating performanceâ€™ (West End Wilma). The Witch’s Mark is written and directed by award-winning playwright Timothy N. Evers.
Winner of Festival Spirit Award 2017 at VAULT Festival, The Witchâ€™s Mark is brought to life by Over The Limit and forms part of their Celtic Season currently touring the UK.
Join Over the Limit Theatre for a post show Q&A on Thursday 20th of July.
