The Crucible

Don't miss this gripping retell of Arthur Miller's play The Crucible at the Gielgud Theatre. Although it isn't based on a true story, this production is inspired by the Salem witch trials, which saw hundreds of people accused of witchcraft in Massachusetts. The Crucible follows a group of young girls who in court for these accusations after the whole town think they are guilty. This causes deadly consequences, and the women decided it's time to stand up for what they believe in.
