Synopsis: A rich tapestry of passion, ambition, and transformation, Kissing The Witch allows women to reclaim the stories and identities that have been used against them for centuries. Five familiar tales – Beauty and the Beast, Donkeyskin, The Goose Girl, The Little Mermaid, and an enchanting new story – are seamlessly unspun and rewoven in unexpected ways. Women young and old tell their own stories of love, lies, and alliances – all with a determination to seize back the narrative.

Kissing The Witch challenges what we think we know of traditional tales of ‘good’ and ‘evil’. It explores the nuance in the fantastical, and the sensual in the magical; it reclaims the power of the Witch.

Kissing The Witch was written by acclaimed Irish author and playwright Emma Donoghue, best known for her novel Room.

(Please be advised that this play contains coarse language and adult themes, including attempted incest.)
