The Crucible

Arthur Miller
The Old Vic

Richard Armitage stars in Arthur Miller’s classic American drama, brought vividly to life in this visceral new production by director Yaël Farber.

In a small tight-knit community, personal grievances collide with lust and superstition, fuelling widespread hysteria. Miller’s timeless parable attacks the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations.
