Arthur Miller's The Crucible

Written in the early 1950s, "The Crucible" takes place in Salem, Massachusetts during the 1692 Witch Trials. This was a time when paranoia, hysteria, and deceit gripped the Puritan towns of New England.

 

Miller captures the events in a gripping story that is now considered a modern classic. He wrote it during the "Red Scare" and used the witch trials as a metaphor for the 'witch hunts' of communists in America.

 

With the current political situation of "fake news", confusion of ideals and the global rise of nationalism, we felt that there had never been a better time to revisit this incredible piece of theatre
