Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Selladoor Productions in association with Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg present Miller’s terrifying witch-hunt classic.
In a tight-knit community, a group of girls is caught dancing wildly in the woods. Terrifying allegations of witchcraft ensue. Lust, superstition and personal grievances collide and the whole village is quickly consumed by an unstoppable flow of fear, paranoia and manipulation – no-one is safe from its neighbour and the noose. Who will survive? This bold new production of one of the twentieth century’s finest plays is directed by the Queen’s Theatre’s new artistic director Douglas Rintoul, who thrilled audiences with his recent sell-out production of Made in Dagenham. One of America’s greatest playwrights, Arthur Miller is the author of many of today’s most celebrated modern classics including All My Sons, Death of a Salesman and A View from the Bridge. The Crucible is a chilling reminder of the frailty of reason in the face of hysteria.
