Four women accused of witchcraft are locked together awaiting their sentence in the shadows. Scared and hungry they don’t know who they can trust or who will survive…
Wrong Shoes Theatre Company invites you into a dark and spellbinding world, where those who dare to stand out from the crowd are treated with hatred and suspicion.
Devised from historical accounts of witches from Wiltshire and further afield, The Unbinding explores mob mentality and our insatiable need to punish those who are different.
An intense performance featuring stark realism, horror, physical theatre and original new music.
The Unbinding is supported using public funding by Arts Council England

“The word ‘raw’ springs to mind when reflecting on this production. It retained an admirable and ceaseless authenticity, sparing no detail for the sake of societal comfort. Honest, touching and timeless in its message, watching The Unbinding was certainly a worthwhile and enriching experience.”
“A dark, intense performance will make your heart stop. Creepy, intense and oozing with raw talent.”
“This was one of the most remarkable striking and uncomfortable productions that I have seen in a long time. Almost every scene packs a punch straight to the gut. It is bold, violent and unashamedly female.”
