The Witch of Edmonton

Witch-of-Edmonton-production-1-361x501

Last night Sarah Hosking and I went to see the RSC production of The Witch of Edmonton, with the sublime Eileen Atkins as Elizabeth Sawyer – the Witch, David Rintoul as Sir Arthur Clarington and Jay Simpson as The Dog – the Devil.  Quite a shock to see Simpson, such a seasoned TV and film actor playing such a raw physical role, but he was wonderful, as was Eileen Atkins and the whole cast.

This exciting production was directed by Gregory Doran, Artistic Director of the RSC  and the beautiful music was composed by Paul Englishby.

Here is a very interesting review by Kate Kellaway from the Observer and Michael Billington’s review from the Guardian Here
