National Theatre Live: The Crucible
as part of Theatre From London
Part of the Theatre From London Series: 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).
"The National at its best." – Daily Telegraph
"Really great...digs deep into the play's questions of human longing for justice." – Daily Mail
"Miller's CRUCIBLE burns bright once more." – Evening Standard
