DESCRIPTION:

A bold and gripping thriller starring Maxine Peake

One life in the hands of 12 women.  In rural Suffolk in 1759, as the country waits for Halley’s comet, a young woman is sentenced to hang for a heinous murder.  When she claims to be pregnant, a jury of 12 matrons are taken from their housework to decide whether she’s simply trying to escape the noose. With only midwife Lizzy Luke prepared to defend the girl, and a mob baying for blood outside, the matrons wrestle with their new authority, and the devil in their midst.

James Macdonald directs Maxine Peake and Ria Zmitrowicz in this bold and gripping thriller from Tony Award-nominated writer Lucy Kirkwood.
