The Crucible

Posted on 20th November 2019

On Saturday, 16th November, the English Department led a sixth form theatre trip to see a production of The Crucible as part of their A Level study of modern literature.  A powerful tale with challenging political overtones, Arthur Miller’s play re-enacts the tragedy of the witch hunts, fake news and mob rule that unfolded in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692.  A superb production, the Asylum Players skilfully explored the impact of McCarthyism in the 1950s and its relevance to attitudes and values that still endure today.
