HAGS – A Magical Extravaganza

In Bideford in 1682, the final witch trial in Britain took place. Three women were
accused of witchcraft, tried & hanged.
Now fast forward to the present day and name one female magician…pretty
tricky. But tonight, three fearless females are climbing out of their boxes,
shaking off the sequins and investigating what really happened in a small town
in North Devon 340 years ago.
Packed full of magic tricks, physical comedy & live music, our magiciennes
explore the witch-hunt mania that swept the country and sent hundreds of
innocent women to the gallows. With mind-blowing illusions, stupendous stunts
and the occasional disappearing rabbit, ‘Hags’ sets the record straight for
thousands of falsely accused women with all the joy, silliness & spectacle these
three can muster.
“Hags enchants and charms as dark secrets, sleight of hand and historical
horrors unfold.”
