The Crucible 2015

“a production fully worthy of this powerful play”

The EUTC’s production of The Crucible invites you to journey to Salem Massachusetts to 1692 at the height of the Salem witch trials to experience how swiftly honest God-fearing people can be swept up in a bacchanalia of fear, paranoia and loathing all set beneath the wooden beams and amongst the dirt and hay of our very own barn.

“a strong concept from Director Elske Waite and her production designer Harriet Visick”
All Edinburgh Theatre

A powerful study of the human condition, the play tracks the implosion of a small community. Kindled by a culture of conceit, suspicion, and generation-old rivalries, a fire of accusations catches light as the facade of civilisation is torn away and our base tendencies are laid bare.

For one week only Bedlam Theatre will be transformed into a 1600’s barn, presenting this classic drama in a thorough and historically accurate production. This authentic staging of the play allows light to shine on the beautifully detailed characters painstakingly researched by Miller.

“a production that firmly locates in its historical setting, and is all the more powerful for that”

“A chilling realisation. A view of inevitable destruction of the human beings, the fallible individuals who have become caught up in this trial.”
