It’s an apocalyptic fight for God, and it’s a fight that we must win

1645. A dark shadow is spreading across England with suspicions of witchcraft on the rise.

In the remote village of Mistley, Susan Edwards, step-sister of self-proclaimed Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins, has a choice to make. Does she choose to believe that the powers of Satan have found their way into their homes – or instead, search for the truth in a community torn apart by fear, intolerance, and hysteria?

Following a sell-out run at Ipswich’s Avenue Theatre, critically acclaimed playwright Joanna Carrick’s new play makes its London debut. Based on true events, The Ungodly is a gripping, chilling story about womanhood, power and how the flames of a fanatical movement can ignite from the smallest spark.
