Vinegar Tom


Caryl Churchill

Published by Samuel French Inc

2 Male 7 Female

Although Vinegar Tom is set in the 16th or 17th century in rural England, it has a contemporary feel and may be staged very simply

It tells the story of two farm women who are named as witches by a man whom they have spurned sexually

The connection between fear of female sexuality and witch hysteria is shown to be at the root of many of society's problems. The music is published in the script

"Provocative theatre as well as a conscience baring document" ~ N.Y. Times

"A fascinating piece, full of life" ~ N.Y. Post

"Powerful" ~ London Daily Mail

"Beautiful play" ~ London Tribune
