Women, Beware the Devil
By Lulu Raczka, Directed by Rupert Goold
Sat 11 Feb – Sat 25 Mar 2023
“Wickedly funny…Infernally good stuff.”
“This may be the biggest
But it is far from the first sacrifice I’ve made for this house
And I’m sure it won’t be the last
But don’t fret.
A war is brewing.
Rumours are flying.
A household is in crisis.
…and the Devil’s having some fun.
For Lady Elizabeth nothing is more important than protecting her family’s legacy and their ancestral home. When that comes under threat, she elicits the help of Agnes, a young servant suspected of witchcraft. But Agnes has dark dreams of her own for this house.
This deadly new play is a “sinfully wild experience” (WhatsOnStage) by “bold and brilliant playwright” (The Guardian) Lulu Raczka (Antigone). Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Patriots) directs this “raucous production” (Evening Standard) full of treachery and trickery.
