About The Last Witch

Pitlochry Festival Theatre in association with Firebrand Theatre Company

Plenty women are withered to dust at my age. Dead in damp graves. But I’m as full of juice as an autumn bramble.

A rich, poetic tale full of ambiguity and suspense, The Last Witch reimagines the true story of the alleged Witch of Dornoch. Did Janet Horne actually practise witchcraft? Or was she really a free-thinking woman, ahead of her time?

From the writer of the acclaimed The James Plays, Iron and Bold Girls, Rona Munro’s tense, passionate play, originally commissioned by the Traverse, is brought vividly to life in this thrilling new revival.
