The Crucible at the Old Vic Theatre, London

Now showing

Written at the height of the McCarthy communist in Fifties' America, Arthur Miller's ever-relevant work of paranoia and false accusation is reimagined by multiple award-winning director Yael Farber, in a special play performed in-the-round at the Old Vic. Spooks and The Hobbit star Richard Armitage takes the title role as a man who battles for his conscience and purity of spirit, amidst the chaos and lustful superstition of the Salem witch-trials.
