The Ungodly

Discover the real Mathew Hopkins and the truth behind the witch hunts

The Ungodly



Mistley 1645. The darkest truths can only be the work of Satan.

The Ungodly is a new play by critically acclaimed playwright Joanna Carrick (Put Out The Lights, Fallen in Love & Progress). Set on the Stour estuary in Mistley, East Anglia, The Ungodly explores the events which led to the terrifying witch hunts led by Mathew Hopkins, Witchfinder General in 1645. The play is inspired by new evidence suggesting that Hopkins’ own family tragedies were a catalyst for his reign of terror. It explores the reality of good people being drawn into a movement which persuades them to do terrible things and draws parallels with the polarised world we live in today.


Age guidance: 12+

Please note that this play includes references to baby mortality
