When a group of young girls are discovered dancing in the woods trying to conjure spirits, the God-fearing people of a small New England town are told the devil and witchcraft is in their midst and must be rooted out at all costs. The town is quickly caught up in an unstoppable flow of paranoia, indictment and manipulation as personal grievances collide with lust and superstition creating a crucible of suspicion where no person is safe from its neighbour.

This bold new production of The Crucible starring Charlie Condou (Coronation Street), as the witch hunter, Reverend Hale and Victoria Yeates (Call the Midwife), the falsely accused Elizabeth Proctor, serves as a stark and chilling reminder of the frailty of reason in the face of hysteria and the terrifying power of false accusations.

The Crucible is an ageless allegory of morality, a scorching indictment of fanaticism, and the most powerful central work of American drama.

I saw The Crucible this evening and I was blown away by it. I enjoyed every minute. The acting was phenomenal and done with passion. The play was the best I have seen in a long time and it will stay with me. Brilliant production all round! I would highly recommend it.

Unfortunately underwhelming

God, If I could rate this lower I would. The actors clearly had no idea what their characters were feeling and very clearly didn't understand the play at all. What were meant to be the most exciting scenes in the play fell completely flat because the actors couldn't get the intensity they really needed. The sound design was clumsy and boring, set was strange and detracting, accents were all over the place and costume made no sense. Seriously, watch something else.
