Award-winning composer Kerry Andrew and singer/writer Jessica Walker explore the parallels between the scapegoating of outsiders by witch-finder Matthew Hopkins in 1640s East Anglia and the uncomfortable social climate of post-referendum Britain. With echoes of Peter Grimes, this initial work-in- progress imagines events surrounding the persecution of three unconventional outsiders who have taken up residence in a small, close-knit town.
