This sounds interesting and a bit different. When Leah’s aunt is hospitalised after an incident in her village, 17-year-old Leah is intent on revenge. Rachel Bellman’s debut play about Jewish family life, antisemitism, and misogyny was long-listed for the Women’s Prize for Playwriting and takes a turn for comic horror as Leah and her sister visit their aunt’s remote cottage and before long start to feel as if they are not alone there. A modern-day exploration of ancient Jewish demonology which asks questions around witchcraft, otherness, knowing who we are, and how to question the stories we’ve been told.

About These Demons

In a cottage in the woods, the window won’t stay shut. Feathers fall from the ceiling. And every now and then, you hear a scuttling. When an event puts her aunt Mirah in hospital, 17-year-old Leah takes it upon herself to find the perpetrator and exact revenge. But as she puts together her plan, the lines of reality become blurred. Her search for answers becomes a search for demons – metaphorical and…not. Despite what her sister Danielle tells her, the shadows in their aunt’s remote cottage seem to move. Surrounded by books about Jewish exorcisms, the two sisters fight the sinking suspicion that they’re not alone. Age Recommendation: 14+
