The EUTC’s production of The Crucible invites you to journey to Salem Massachusetts to 1692 at the height of the Salem witch trials to experience how swiftly honest God-fearing people can be swept up in a bacchanalia of fear, paranoia and loathing all set beneath the wooden beams and amongst the dirt and hay of our very own barn.
A powerful study of the human condition, the play tracks the implosion of a small community. Kindled by a culture of conceit, suspicion, and generation-old rivalries, a fire of accusations catches light as the facade of civilisation is torn away and our base tendencies are laid bare.
For one week only Bedlam Theatre will be transformed into a 1600’s barn, presenting this classic drama in a thorough and historically accurate production. This authentic staging of the play allows light to shine on the beautifully detailed characters painstakingly researched by Miller.
