The Crucible by Arthur Miller – The Play
Focussing on the fate of those caught up in the persecution surrounding the 1692 Salem witch trials and originally reflecting Senator McCarthy’s hunt for Communists in 1950s America, its meaning (says Miller) “is somewhat different in different places and moments”. Director, Chrissie Garrett’s vision centres on the themes of hysteria, fear of differences, and hunting out those who think differently, staging the play in modern dress and in a timeless fashion.
