Young Wick Theatre Company returns with an unsettling tale of witchcraft

YOUNG Wick Theatre Company is returning to the Barn Theatre stage for the first time in several years.

Shooting Truth is a short play, written for young actors by Molly Davies and first performed at the National Theatre Connection Festival in 2011.

Members of Young Wick, part of Wick Theatre Company, will perform the play at the Barn, in Southwick Street, Southwick, on April 3 and 4 at 8pm.

A group of students venture deep into the woods, preparing to shoot a film for their school project, inspired by the local legend of the youngest-ever witch.

Four centuries earlier, a gang of teenagers are gathering in the same woods, determined to uncover the truth - is there really a witch in their midst?

The children in both centuries are drawn deeper into events, which begin to spiral out of control as past and present threaten to collide.

Isabelle Fink, who is directing the play with Zoey Attree, said: “It is an unsettling tale of witchcraft, film-making and practical jokes gone wrong.

“The talented young cast bring to life the story as legend and history intertwine.”

Tickets are £9 from the box office on 01273 597094 or online via www.wicktheatre.co.uk
