The Witches tells the story of a brave young boy and his Norwegian grandmother as they battle England’s child-hating witches. The play is based on the story by Roald Dahl.
Witches absolutely detest children. To a witch, a child smells like dogs’ droppings. And now the Grand High Witch is planning to get rid of every child in England – can anybody stop them?
This is not a fairy tale. This is about REAL witches. Real witches don’t ride around on broomsticks. They don’t even wear black cloaks and hats. They are vile, cunning, detestable creatures who disguise themselves as nice, ordinary ladies.
