The Crucible Tickets

Gielgud Theatre

Paranoia and mass hysteria abound as the National Theatre’s hit revival of Arthur Miller’s classic play transfers to the West End.

A witch hunt begins in Salem…

Paranoia and mass hysteria creep into the West End in The Crucible at the Gielgud Theatre this year. Experience the truth on trial in Arthur Miller’s classic play, direct from the National Theatre.

In Salem, Massachusetts, a community teeters on the edge of hysteria. When a group of young women realise the power of their collective voice, cries of witchcraft spiral out of control and a terrifying trial begins.

Arthur Miller’s fearsome play is an account of society pushed to the brink as personal grievances become public vendettas. It has been reimagined and restaged countless times since first premiering in 1953, and remains fiercely relevant in the 21st century.

Director Linsdey Turner’s (Top Girls; Under Milk Wood) urgent and instinctive production opened at the Olivier Theatre in 2022, and now transfers to the West End for a limited season.

The cast of The Crucible at the Gielgud Theatre is led by Milly Alcock (House of the Dragon) in her West End debut as Abigail.

Book The Crucible tickets to experience the full force of Miller’s visceral, claustrophobic classic on stage.

Written as a play by Arthur Miller, which premiered in 1953, this is based upon the Salem witch trials of 1692/3. I have strong positives and negatives in my review. It’s the dramatic rain curtain that instantly catches your eye when you first walk i Read more

An intense, sad story based on the infamous Salem witch trials. That it happened at all is weird, but this play well demonstrates how society was riddled with superstition, warped religious fervour, groupthink and the self righteousness of those with Read more

Saw this at the National - always love to see how things transfer. This is actually better than when it was at the National. The smaller stage here adds to the feeling of intensity and inevitability of the tradgedy unfolding - and the inability of go Read more
