The Crucible

The Crucible

Synopsis

Starring Charlie Condou (Coronation Street) and Victoria Yeates (Call The Midwife). In a small 17th century New England town a children’s game has terrifying consequences as allegations of witchcraft break out. Quickly caught up in an unstoppable flow of paranoia, accusation and manipulation, the community is consumed by a climate of suspicion where no person is safe from its neighbour.
 
This bold new production of The Crucible starring Charlie Condou (Coronation Street), as the witch hunter, Reverend Hale and Victoria Yeates (Call the Midwife), the falsely accused Elizabeth Proctor, is directed by Douglas Rintoul, Artistic Director of the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch, and brings together music and movement through a strong and ever-present cast. This atmospheric staging of a theatre classic is co-produced with Selladoor Productions, in association with Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, and is a chilling reminder of the frailty of reason in the face of hysteria.
