The World Turned Upside Down
21st – 29th Feb 2020 at The Avenue Theatre
Ipswich 1644. From Mistley to Manningtree. Voices in the Shadows. Accusation of Witchcraft.
THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN is a new historical play by Joanna Carrick about the Suffolk Witch Trials and the rise and fall of the self-proclaimed ‘Witch Finder General’, Matthew Hopkins.
A group of young people growing up in Puritan Ipswich begin to question what is happening and challenge the persecution which is turning the world upside down.
The piece has been created with the Chainers youth theatre, our inclusive company for young people. This is part of a wider project funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
