What is The Crucible about?

The National Theatre’s acclaimed new production of The Crucible transfers to the West End this June for a strictly limited season. Olivier Award-winner Lyndsey Turner directs this electrifying new production with designs by Es Devlin in a ‘magnificent restaging’ (The Telegraph) of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece, a gripping parable of power and its abuse.

A witch hunt is beginning in Salem... Raised to be seen but not heard, a group of young women suddenly find their words have a terrible power. As a climate of fear spreads through the community, private vendettas fuel public accusations and soon the truth itself is on trial.

Please note: Please arrive in plenty of time as latecomers may not be admitted until a suitable break in the performance. You may not bring food or drink purchased elsewhere.
