The Crucible
    By Arthur Miller

    19:00, Tue 7th November 2006 - Sat 11th November 2006 at The Round Church
    Michaelmas Week 5

    “A fire, a fire is burning! I hear the boot of Lucifer, I see his filthy face!” The small theocratic community of Salem is stirred in to madness after some young girls are accused of consorting with the devil. A terrifying witch-hunt ensues, fed by superstition, paranoia and malice, culminating in a violent climax. Miller’s classic parable of mass hysteria draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witch-hunt of 1692 and the McCarthyism which gripped America in the 1950s. It is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations.

    This production is a Cambridge first, as it will be staged in the famous Round Church; performed in-the-round creating a powerful atmosphere which forces the audience to suffer the hysteria themselves.
