More About The Crucible - Miller's Shocking Social Commentary on the Power of Fear
A product of McCarthyism, this bitter social commentary written under the guise of the Salem witch trials of the late 1600s has been singled out for greatness from the start. Its debut performance on Broadway in 1953 saw the production win 'Best Play' at the prestigious Tony Awards and it's been delighting theatre goers ever since. The story revolves around the repercussions of humble farmer John Proctor's infidelities with ex-maid Abigail Williams. Whilst staying with her uncle, Reverend Parris, a dark omen of things to come appears in the form of his daughter's illness. The sickness is attributed to witchcraft and all eyes quickly turn on Parris' slave Tituba who had been helping cast love potions for the children. Harnessing the fear that's struck the village, Abigail coerces the other girls into directing the attention to Proctor's wife Elizabeth in a fit of revenge, leading Proctor to choose between what is right and what will save his life.
Taking advantage of the new 'in-the-round' purpose-built specifically for this season, this special production of Miller's seminal work promises to leave audiences completely spellbound by Armitage's passionate performance.
