Synopsis


“The fire of fear is the only flame that burns bright.”


The winter of 1692 was cold and Salem Village finds itself under attack.


CALL ME FURY is about The Witch Trials. Sort of.


A feral scream of rage, this play is a commentary about sexual politics and feminism today.


Using folk songs and stories from Witch Trials across the world, the all-female ensemble "give[s] voice to the women, the poor and the outcasts to ask: what is it that we fear so much that we cease to see others as human?" - Lyn Gardner


Fresh from a SOLD OUT run at VAULT Festival 2019, CALL ME FURY is a new play by Sasha Wilson, author of BURY THE HATCHET (VAULT 2018 People's Choice Award Winner and Off West End Award Winner for Best Ensemble).


For women then, now and always.


But also for you gents.
