Henry Heymann Theatre

Vinegar Tom tells the story of two 17th-century farmwomen accused of being witches by a man they spurned sexually. The connection between fear of female sexuality and witch hysteria is shown to fuel societal problems.

The playwright wrote Vinegar Tom for a British feminist theatre company that had requested a play about witches.

Despite some potentially grim subject matter Vinegar Tom also offers a great deal of fun, who took inspiration from karaoke clubs and the popular TV singing competition American Idol; Churchill’s disturbing lyrics will be inserted into familiar pop songs, and audiences will vote on which actors they want to sing the musical numbers.
