Above: the play is sort of like a courtroom drama.  There are three characters: Margery Scrope (a woman accused of witchcraft), Sir William Tyrell (the judge/local landowner seated) and Thomas Latimer (the accuser).

Above: the play is thought provoking and well researched (it is based on real cases from the early modern period).
