Direct from a sell-out run at Vault Festival 2017, The Witch's Mark is a new play written and directed by award-winning playwright Timothy N. Evers.


Winner of Festival Spirit Award 2017 at Vault Festival, The Witch's Mark is presented by Over The Limit and forms part of their Celtic Season currently touring the UK.


The Witch's Mark tells the true story of one woman's resistance against the dark forces determined to destroy her.


Based on historical and contemporary accounts of the Scottish witch trials, The Witch's Mark blends contemporary storytelling with Shakespearian tragedy.


Producer, Oran Doyle, said ...


‘This is such an exciting opportunity to transfer our hugely successful and well-received sell-out show from VAULT Festival to the fantastic theatre, The Space.


We can't wait to share this gripping and evocative tale of Agnes Sampson with our new audiences!'


Note: the show contains strong language and sexual references.

About The Company


Over The Limit were formed in 2015 by Joseph Cullen and Oran Doyle with the aim of reimagining the stories and tales of the forgotten person.


Male or female, alive or dead, fact or fiction, they seek to bring them to life on stage.


Through vivid new writing, contemporary original scores and dramatic stagecraft, Over The Limit aim to give a voice to those that have been forgotten in the midst of time.


Central to Over The Limit's ethos is the promotion of new and emerging talent in London and their productions have seen them work with alumni from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, LAMDA, Rose Bruford, and Bird College to create exciting original work.


Over The Limit's inaugural production, GENTLE TIM, premiered at VAULT 2016 and has since gone on to be developed for a full length production with runs programmed across the country.


Winner of the 2016 VAULT Festival Spirit Award for GENTLE TIM.


Winner of the 2017 VAULT Festival Spirit Award for THE WITCH'S MARK, THE LOCK IN, and SIREN.
