Olivier Award-winner Lyndsey Turner directs this electrifying new production with set design by Es Devlin in a ‘nigh-on perfect revival’ (Evening Standard) of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece, a gripping parable of power and its abuse.

A witch hunt is beginning in Salem…

Raised to be seen but 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.

Featuring Milly Alcock (House of the Dragon) as Abigail Williams, Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex, Succession) as Elizabeth Proctor, and Brian Gleeson (Bad Sisters) as John Proctor, our acclaimed production of The Crucible is now playing at the Gielgud Theatre for a strictly limited summer season.
