Vinegar Tom, Caryl Churchill’s response to uncompromising systems of patriarchy both past and present, centers on unconventional women in a 17th century rural town. Their scandalous and inexcusable behavior includes sleeping with a stranger, owning an old cat, cursing at the neighbors, and disinterest in marriage and children. Steeped in a landscape of pride, poverty and prejudice, the question persists – what makes a witch? This play with music, born out of the second wave feminist movement of the 60’s and 70’s, is The Crucible meets Oooo Hooo Witchay Woman meets Handmaid’s Tale.
