Crucible Poster

The Crucible

The Crucible is over! But wow, what an incredible run it was. Read on for some of the incredible reviews we recieved, and to see some of our best pictures from the show.

Written by Arthur Miller and Directed by Jessica McLean; The whims of one woman turn a town of good, respectable people upside down. Friends turn against each other and darkness engulfs them. Our play takes us right into the heart of the Salem Witch Trials. The rumour of witchcraft grows, led by Abigail Williams, rumour turns to panic which turns to hysteria, but there might be more to people’s accusations than they are letting on.

Wednesday 29th March – Saturday 1st April
