The Witch of Edmonton is a classic Elizabethan drama set in the village of Edmonton. Old, lonely and poor Elizabeth Sawyer is accused of being a witch by her neighbours. She wishes that she really was bewitched and so able to wreak vengeance. Unluckily for Elizabeth and the villagers of Edmonton, someone with the power to grant that wish is listening.
As Elizabeth uses her new found powers to seek revenge on those who have wronged her, other villagers find their own lives falling apart and an attempted elopement ends in murder. When witch and murderer are finally caught, the people of Edmonton must decide if either crime merits forgiveness.
