The CrucibleA man is strident in his fight to save his identity in a community where intolerance is clashing with lust and superstition in The Crucible. Arthur Miller's drama set during the Salem witch trials in 17th century Massachusetts is directed by South African Yael Farber, who was behind an acclaimed version of Mies Julie at London's Riverside Studios, staged in May 2013. The Telegraph critic Charles Spencer calls this Old Vic production "thrilling" and "electifying", a "harrowing play" that "achieves the intensity of a thriller" while Michael Billington, writing in The Guardian, praises the play's "raw, visceral power" and Samantha Colley's "remarkable" Abigail.

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
