The Burning

Incognito Theatre Company

31st Jul 2019 - 26th Aug 2019

Upstairs - Pleasance Courtyard


Suitable for ages 14 and above


Good witch. Wicked witch. White queen. Red queen. Maternal. Frigid. Madonna. Whore. The endless female trade-off between goodness and power.

Following back-to-back sell-out shows and in their award-winning physical style, Incognito return with a formidable tale of corruption, persecution... and pure, roaring rage.

The Burning follows the lives of the women and their witch hunters in an epic story through time, history, capitalism, and the consequences of societal fear when faced with change.


Winner of the 2018 Les Enfants Greenwich Partnership award and fresh from a critically aclaimed international tour Incognito return to the fringe following 4 back-to-back sell out shows.
