Arthur Miller's Crucible
In a small 17th century New England town a children's game has terrifying consequences as allegations of witchcraft break out. Quickly caught up in an unstoppable flow of paranoia, accusation and manipulation, the community is consumed by a climate of suspicion where no person is safe from their neighbour.
An allegory of the chilling McCarthyism of American politics in the 1950s, The Crucible also serves as a warning to future generations. Enter the world of sensationalism, hysteria and the power of celebrity that was the Salem Witch Trials and ask yourself how innocent we can really be as we stand by and watch a witch hunt unfold.
This bold new production of The Crucible is directed by Douglas Rintoul, Artistic Director of the Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch, and brings together music and movement through a strong and ever present cast. This atmospheric staging of a theatre classic is co-produced with Sell A Door Theatre Company, in association with Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg and is a chilling reminder of the frailty of reason in the face of hysteria.
