Caryl Churchill's 'Vinegar Tom' is a feminist play about witchcraft and the roles of women in society. The play focuses on
mass hysteria and has many different characters with many different views on how women should be seen and act.
When many of the women are accused of witchcraft, many of the women are hanged and others are subjected to public humiliation
and torture. Churchill acknowledges many feminine issues that are not usually spoken about in play texts, such as a woman's
menstral cycle and gender oppression. Much of the complexities of the play are outlined in the crudeness of the songs that
separate some of the scenes.
