Witchfinder
Witchfinder
Prejudice, power, love and honour all vie for supremacy in both the King’s court in London and in the village of Pendle, as they are pitted against each other in a struggle for truth - and survival. Junction 4 Productions presents this powerful and thrilling musical in its tenth year of performance.

It is 1612 and England is recovering from the Gunpowder Plot of several years earlier and the implications it has for the people and the Monarchy. The country has also been tainted by accusations of witchcraft and a frightened King fears more Catholic conspiracies.

Against this backdrop, Witchfinder introduces the story of two young lovers from different classes, backgrounds and worlds, thrust together in a melting pot of politics and suspicion, fuelled by fear and an over-zealous desire to hunt down the evildoers - whether they exist or not.

Witchfinder is a not just another musical - it's a grand scale original production with a script that has the weight and gravitas of a pure drama, but with soaring, beautifully orchestrated songs and some stand out characters.

It traces the true story of the Pendle witch trial and all those affected, with tragic and heart-rending consequences. It paints a picture of humanity which is just as resonant today; encompassing life and of loss but more importantly, love and hope.
