About the event

Scottish Storyteller Shona Cowie confronts the state of Scotland’s highstreets through the legend of Maggie Osborne - burnt as a witch for building a flourishing business, in just one night, With the Devil’s Assistance. Masterful storytelling and original live music; this is a story for our time, a tale of women in business, witches, and power.

Sit down, I’ll tell you a story. Maggie Osborne made a deal with the devil to bring prosperity to the high street and built a business in just one night with Auld Horny himself. The deal was a cracker and the town boomed, so the people burnt Maggie alive. The deal broke through and whilst I’m not saying any of this is true… just look at the state of Scotland & high streets now. Call a town meeting! A highly physical storytelling performance from Shona Cowie, with original live music from accordionist Neil Sutcliff.
