Director's Notes

2021 marks the 400th anniversary of the premiere of The Witch of Edmonton, and — as anyone who has celebrated one recently can attest — now is surely a strange and singular moment for a birthday.  

The Witch of Edmonton represents the work of (at least) three writers, namely Thomas Dekker, John Ford, and William Rowley. Perhaps appropriately then, the play contains three distinct plot threads, with two of the three being entirely fictional, and the third based on contemporary events: firstly, a domestic tragedy involving a secret pregnancy, a bigamous marriage, and a desperate attempt to save a family from financial ruin, secondly, a city comedy where a young man turns to the occult to win the affection of the source of his unrequited love, and lastly the torn-from-the-headlines story of the titular ‘witch’, Elizabeth Sawyer, an elderly woman who was hanged for witchcraft in a suburb outside London in 1621.

The society presented by Dekker, Ford, and Rowley in The Witch of Edmonton is one of gossip and paranoia, false piety and hypocritical moralism. It is also one in which the landowning rich establish the social order while shirking their paternalistic duty for charity, leaving the poor with little agency. My adaptation shifts the action from the somewhat remote Jacobean witch-craze, to the more familiar Province of Massachusetts Bay in 1692, and the village of Andover. Though the location we are much more familiar with from this time and place is certainly Salem — largely because it was the sight of the infamous trials which claimed the lives of fourteen women and five men (and two dogs) between June and September of 1692 — nearby Andover actually saw the highest number of accusations; in a village of less than 600 people, one in fifteen would eventually be accused of diabolical sorcery. The Puritan world view mutated into an even more rigid and condemnatory strain of radical Protestantism over the decades and miles that separate 1620s Edmonton from 1690s Andover, and so our production’s conceptual lens also serves to raise the play’s stakes while staying true to the germ of its original politic.

Among the many probing and disquieting questions the play poses is this: to what lengths would each of us go in order that we might save a parent from ruin, win a crush’s affection, or defend ourselves from the brutality of an unjust society. Were the offer to be made, would we forge an infernal compact if the walls were ever to truly close-in on us?

The term ‘witch hunt’ is never truly absent from the public discourse, but in recent years former President Trump made it unavoidable as it appeared in tweet after maniacal tweet — over eighty during the Mueller investigation alone. In her 2020 book The Witches are Coming, author Lindy West speaks to the many ways in which Trump both misappropriates the term’s intended meaning, and ignores its very real historical implications. In Trump’s usage, it would seem as though ‘witch hunts’ were, in fact, a hysteria of the powerless persecuting the powerful. As we well know, though, the true ‘witches’ among us have always been the outsiders, the misunderstood and marginalized, a truism that makes the aforementioned 400 years contract, and allows a murdered Jacobean ‘witch’ the chance to reach across time and offer us her hand in solidarity. 

I wish to extend profound thanks to Peter Hinton-Davis and Professor David Dean for their inspiration and insights throughout the conception and creation of this production.
