kissing the witch

They say she gives you one long look and your life hangs in the balance. But they say so many things about her, they can't all be true.

A potent brew of passion, ambition, and courage, Kissing the Witch cracks open the stories we know and love to see what's really going on beneath the cloaks and crowns. Journey through time and tradition as five fantastical stories weave a tapestry of love, lust and everything in between.

By Oscar-winning writer of Room, Emma Donoghue.

★★★★ 'Keeps you hooked until the end'   - The Scotsman 

A dark and twisted rollercoaster through the back alleys and mean streets of Dublin. This thrilling new play brings you to places you shouldn't go (but want to) while asking one well do you really know yourself?

Inspired by the world of Edgar Allan Poe, 'The Fetch Wilson' is an exciting collaboration between The Corps Ensemble and award-winning writer Stewart Roche (Wringer, Revenant, The Snake Eaters, Tracer).

'a young, energetic and fearless company'
