The Crucible tickets

Paranoia and witchcraft in Salem

Paranoia and accusation rear their heads in Arthur Miller’s modern classic, The Crucible, which returns to London in a powerful new production at the National Theatre.

Set in Salem, Massachusetts, The Crucible is the story of a community on the edge as hysteria spreads like wildfire and neighbours eye each other with suspicion. When a group of young women find their collective voice and realise their fearsome power, cries of evil echo out, and a terrifying trial unfolds.

The Crucible is a gripping account of a small community whipped into a frenzy by American playwright Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman). In London, director Lindsey Turner (Under Milk Wood; Top Girls) presents an urgent and visceral revival of the play on the National Theatre’s Olivier stage.

The Crucible London cast includes Erin Doherty (The Crown) as Abigail Williams, Brendan Cowell (Yerma) as John Proctor, Eileen Walsh (Women on the Verge) as Elizabeth Proctor and Fisayo Akinade (Romeo and Juliet) as Reverend Hale.

Running for a strictly limited season, book The Crucible tickets to experience the full force of Miller’s compelling theatrical masterpiece.

Matinee performance so an understudy – but she was great and not a main character. This is very dense and intense writing. For those not familiar with the text there is a lot to take in and some can be missed. Such a layered, thought-provoking play that it needs several viewings to try to figure out all of the issues it raises and their relevance today. Very clever stuff, but long and hard work to start with.

So much substance to the play and such wonderful performances. However, not convinced the direction helped the audience. Lots of characters – if you don’t get their names sorted you get lost with the references later on.

Gets better with each viewing. Some lovely visual effects. Some fleeting appearances of cast at the back of the stage. Lots going on, but sometimes it is just a lot of people standing talking. A powerful second act.

Amazing production – very flashy and yet simple. Difficult to take in all the young girls say – some things are lost, but love the singing.
