A play about the last woman to be executed for witchcraft in Scotland, The Last Witch explores the psychological rifts that can divide close communities and drive families apart

Dornoch, northern Scotland, 1727

In the claustrophobic heat of summer, a woman's apparent ability to manipulate the power of land and sea stirs suspicion

Janet Horne can cure beasts, call the wind and charm fish out of the sea

Or can she?

Her refusal to deny the charge of witchcraft puts her in dangerous opposition to the new sheriff

And her defiance threatens not only her own life but that of her daughter

" ... thrilling ... seethes with poetry and emotion and is entirely gripping" ~ Guardian

" ... a powerful, poetic and unsettling supernatural thriller" ~ Scotsman
