In August / September 2018, Identity Theatre will present Arthur Miller's blistering and influential play THE CRUCIBLE - AUDITIONS Sun 25 March
Written in the early 1950s, "The Crucible" takes place in
Salem, Massachusetts during the 1692 Witch Trials.
This was a time when paranoia, hysteria, and deceit
gripped the Puritan towns of New England.
Miller captures the events in a gripping story that is now considered a modern classic. He wrote it during the "Red Scare" and used the witch trials as a metaphor for the 'witch hunts' of communists in America.
With the current political situation of "fake news", confusion of ideals and the global rise of nationalism, there has never been a better time to revisit this incredible piece of theatre.
In Summer 2017, we presented a highly successful run of Dennis Potter's
"Blue Remembered Hills" at the Brighton Open Air Theatre
