THE CHATHAM WITCH 

... Scriptwriting for site specific devised play, 2019

In September 2019, Sam Hall was commissioned by Icon Theatre to research and write sections for Icon Theatre's site specific promenade show to be performed at the newly restored Fort Amherst in Chatham.

 

The Chatham Witch was an unmissable theatrical experience. 

 

The Chatham Witch explored the extraordinary history of women in Medway through the ages, from the Anglo-Saxon burial on Chatham Lines, to the 19th century Chatham Scandal and the ARP women at Fort Amherst in WWII.

Featuring 150 actors, dancers and singers from the local community, newly commissioned music specifically for the performance, a large-scale visual installation created by local artists and residents, and a dazzlingly explosive use of projection on the historic bricks of the Fort, The Chatham Witch brought alive the powerful, true and untold stories of Medway’s most untamed women.

Awake...

Awoke...

Watching...

Waiting...

Under this hill

I lie still...
