Joan of Arc, The Wyrd Sisters from MacBeth, Abigail Williams from The Crucible, and an outspoken 15th century housewife, face off against persecution in this deadly time of “othering”. A charismatic witch hunter defends the Malleus Maleficarum, a violent and sadistic instruction manual describing how to detect, prosecute, torture, and often execute people accused of witchcraft. Based on historical fact, the play Malleus Maleficarum: Hammer of Witches will look at the how the stories we tell can often perpetuate the historical and ongoing persecution of people who are simply different.
