The Crucible

The Crucible was performed in the Brindley Studio on the 17th, 18th and 19th of May 2018.

Arthur Miller’s chilling tale of conformity and religious panic chronicles the Salem Witch Trials, in which 19 people were hanged after being found guilty of witchcraft based on scant and hysterical evidence from a group of young women.
