National Theatre Live: The Crucible by Arthur Miller

NT LIVE - The Crucible


A witch hunt is beginning in Arthur Miller’s captivating parable of power. Raised to be seen but not heard, a group of young women in Salem suddenly find their words have an almighty power. As a climate of fear, vendetta and accusation spreads through the community, no one is safe from trial. Lyndsey Turner (Hamlet) directs this contemporary new staging, designed by Tony Award-winner Es Devlin (The Lehman Trilogy), with Erin Doherty (The Crown) and Brendan Cowell (Yerma) in the lead roles. The play is based on actual events that took place in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 and led to the hanging of twenty innocent people.

Filmed live at the National Theatre (Olivier stage)
