An isolated village. Superstitious. Frightened. Quick to accuse.
When a girl falls mysteriously ill, the villagers believe witchcraft is to blame. Soon, a ruthless search begins to find those who are responsible. But as the truth ceases to matter and anything that is said is believed, one woman realises she can use the witch hunts to exact her own personal revenge…
Arthur Miller’s masterpiece about the Salem witch trials portrays a frenzied society, destroying itself. Directed by Fay Lomas, and performed by Royal & Derngate’s Actors Company (Great Expectations, Market Boy), The Crucible is a taut, tense tale of fear and vengeance.
