After trying to be somebody she’s not amidst the perils of peer pressure, W (our teen witch protagonist) is transported to a cottage in a strange landscape.

In order to find her way home she must embark on a quest to reckon with her history, overcome extraordinary obstacles, and ultimately find her voice.

With music genres spanning folk, blues, punk and drone rock, The Witching Way is a concept album delivered by a live band with animated visuals. Part-fable, part-coming-of-age story, part-gig, this DIY rock opera is a rallying cry for the weird and wonderful among us.


Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Additional support from the Royal Exchange Theatre, the Lowry Studio and New Adelphi Theatre. Special thanks to Cheddar Gorgeous, Liquorice Black, Jo Scott, Peter Stevenson, Matt Randall and George Adams.
