By the time 30 dawns pass you must bury what is precious, for unless you do, hell will come to us all…
During the lavish wedding of wealthy baron, John De Somery’s sister, five witches appear and make a terrifying prediction of death and despair falling across 14th century Weoley Castle, This prophesy is closely followed by failing crops, devastating rainfall, and a widespread plague amongst cattle. Very soon hunger forces villagers to feed on decomposing animal carcases, but just how far will desperation take them and why are mothers being driven to hiding their children?
Inspired by remarkable historical events that took place in and around the ancient landmark, The Witches’ Promise will be performed in the medieval ruins of Weoley Castle.
