The National Theatre’s acclaimed new production of The Crucible transfers to the West End this June for a strictly limited season, featuring Milly Alcock (House of the Dragon) as Abigail Williams, Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex) as Elizabeth Proctor, and Brian Gleeson (Bad Sisters) as John Proctor.
Olivier Award-winner Lyndsey Turner directs this electrifying new production with set design 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.

An aura built by skilfully lit figures in motion and voice choir created a backdrop that was a tapestry for impassioned and skilful dialogue. A show worth so many months of Covid restrictions as a visitor from Cape Town to see.

Excellent taut script that was gripping from start to finish. Brian Gleeson was commanding and was absolutely superb

Quite frankly, it was like a radio play. I ridiculously got restricted seats and they were not joking. I hardly saw anything unless it was towards the back of the stage. But I blame no one but myself for being cheap. It's a same really, because I can't give it a proper review. Oh well, lesson learnt.

I have wanted to see this play for many years, and finally, at 75 years of age, I got my wish. I most probably appreciate this more as an older woman, and I was able to see the frightening, strict religious and patriarchial persecution of poor women in 17thCentury in the USA. Thank you for a fantastic show.

Like a lot plays , but true of novels , works of Art in General that are in the Canon one of the tests of its relevance is how contemporary they feel , tonight’s performance felt essential and modern , yes down to Arthur Miller‘s Wonderfully written nuanced and resonant Masterpiece , but the setting , the way the text is interpreted and the actors are important .All the cast were on point , I know it’s a cliche but it’s true
