About the Play:

HARD TO FIND BOOK, only a very limited number of copies are still available.

The Hunters and the Henwife is a full-length fantasy by Nicholas Stuart Gray. This fantasy takes place in the magical forest around mysterious Unicorn Mountain, where strange things happen – particularly, if you make the mistake of venturing into the woods after dark! There are spooky special effects, as well as loads of comic relief! And let us not forget Hemlock, the sorcerer.

The Hunters and the Henwife follows a young and headstrong nobleman. When he takes his two blundering servants for an evenings' hunting on Unicorn Mountain, they get more game than they bargained for. The Henwife, with all her good magic, cannot save them from the Hemlock and his evilness, but Briony, the Henwife's pretty and headstrong daughter, has enough love to pull them all through and bring peace to the bewitched mountain.

Cast: 4 female, 4 male (flexible casting)
