Part of the Globe Quartos series, co-published with Shakespeare's Globe marking their rediscoveries of forgotten plays by Shakespeare's contemporaries.

The Witches of Lancashire is a sensational dramatisation of the seventeenth-century witch trials, first performed at the original Globe in 1634.

When everything goes wrong at a wedding, everyone starts to believe that a local coven is to blame. The play mocks the naïveté of those who cannot see what is under their noses, i.e. organised witchcraft and its double, Roman Catholicism.

Edited by Gabriel Egan.
