Vinegar Tom

February 24, 2019 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. February 15 – February 24

Under the guise of a 17th century witch hunt, Nazareth College Theatre and Dance Department and Theatre League's latest production will explore the marginalization of women in both the past and present.

Obie Award winning author Caryl Churchill examines the oppressive marginalization of women in the powerful Vinegar Tom, a play with music and dance. Alice, her mother Joan, and other women in the neighborhood are not fitting the societal norms—sparking an investigation by doctors and witch hunters. What unfolds is a tale of injustice and patriarchy that begs the question—where does real evil lie?

**This show contains mature themes, sexuality, and language.**

Vinegar Tom is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
