Set in a seventeenth century village, Vinegar Tom portrays a witch hunt. Who will be accused and who will escape? The play tells the story of Alice and her mother Joan who are accused of witchcraft. The play uses twentieth century songs to link the themes of humiliation and oppression to the present day. It’s a play about poverty and prejudice, issues as relevant now as they were then.
