Written by Arthur Miller
Directed by Tina Shuker-Abell
A dark, cold night and the flames of the fire burn hot. The mood is one of malevolent mischief as Abigail leads the others in a merry but catastrophic dance. As old feuds resurface and resentments come to light, the residents of Salem are rocked to their very core as, one by one, they become prey to the spurned lover and her followers.
The Crucible is based on the Salem witch trials of 1692 and tells the fate of those ensnared in the persecution that led to tragic consequences. In On The Act, Theatre Royal Wakefield’s young company for aspiring theatre-makers combine physical theatre and ensemble storytelling to bring this compelling text to life, laying bare the motivations of the characters in this vicious game of cat and mouse.
