The Crucible hits Northcote stage
Another amazing drama is about to hit the Blackbox Theatre stage at Northcote College – The Crucible, by Arthur Miller – on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 July. Performance and booking details below.
The renowned play is set in the insular community of 1692 Salem, Massachusetts. A group of young girls are caught dancing in the woods. Many immediately fall ill, with the Reverend's daughter in a coma-like state. When no earthly cause can be determined, the citizens of Salem suspect that something more sinister may be at hand.
Long-held grudges turn to violent disputes, humiliating secrets are exposed and disseminated, and the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurry. The citizens’ determination to root out evil becomes more dangerous than the evil itself.
Everyone becomes a suspect, and no one is safe.
, Arthur Miller’s renowned 1963 play, remains as relevant as ever and carries with it a stern warning: In every community torn by suspicion, the most dangerous threat may be the community itself."
