Following a wave of bizarre weather events, mysterious happenings and spontaneous frog transformations of local politicians, the women who claim to be Definitely Not Witches held a press conference to address accusations of harnessing the powers of nature to collude with nefarious powers for personal gain.
“All allegations made as to the nature of our coven - sorry, improv troupe - are completely unfounded and slanderous ,” said Caitlin McNaughton, theatre maker, improvisor and definitely not a witch. Despite a light rain falling, Ms McNaughton appeared to be entirely dry.
“It’s truly preposterous,” said Christine Brooks, pausing briefly to brush frogspawn off her long black cloak and adjust her wide brimmed black hat. “We vehemently deny all accusations and invite all who would speak ill against our good name to come and see the evidence for our case.”
“Our show Definitely Not Witches will provide opportunity for us to demonstrate once and for all that we are very ordinary, simple women, who certainly do not possess any kind of magical powers,” said Jennifer O’Sullivan in response to a reporter who was mysteriously silenced following her steely glare.
Members Rose Cann and Abby Howells were unavailable for comment, as they had important other business to attend to. At the time of writing a huge swirling vortex spiraling above the Mt Victoria lookout that started around the same time had not yet abated.
