Sell a Door Theatre Company and The Queens Theatre Hornchurch, in association with Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg present Arthur Miller’s The Crucible
In 17th Century Salem, a society defined by intolerance and patriarchy, a group of teenage girls are discovered conjuring spirits. Sordid accusations of witchcraft soon fly thick and fast as the girls play judge, jury and executioner – destroying lives and changing a community forever.
As recent political developments in America threaten a return to the witch-hunting politics of the 1960s, The Queens Theatre, Hornchurch re-invigorates Arthur Miller’s terrifying allegorical comment on McCarthyism in their thrilling new production. Celebrating the theatre’s history by bringing together music and movement through a strong and ever-present ensemble cast, this atmospheric staging of a theatrical classic will chill audiences to the core.
Enter the world of the Salem witch trials: a world of sensationalism, hysteria and the power of celebrity, and ask yourself how innocent we can be as we stand by and watch the drama unfold.
The Crucible tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Oct 2016.
