The Crucible

by Arthur Miller

From 14 September to 5 November
Running Time: tbc

The Crucible

Speak of the devil and he appears. 

A witch hunt is beginning in Salem. 

Raised to be seen and not heard, a group of young women suddenly find their words have a terrible power. 

As a climate of fear spreads through the community, private vendettas fuel public accusations and soon the truth itself is on trial.  

Arthur Miller’s gripping parable of power and its abuse returns in an urgent new staging by director Lyndsey Turner (Under Milk Wood, Top Girls).
