The Crucible

The Crucible
by Arthur Miller

Liverpool Network Theatre Group bring you Arthur Miller’s enduring masterpiece, The Crucible. Taking place during the Salem witch hunt of 1692, the play draws parallels with the McCarthy witch hunts which occurred during the playwright’s lifetime in 1950’s America.

Religion, family, ritual, youth and passion come together in this timeless story. The play’s themes of evil, persecution, perception, group hysteria and social judgement are still very much alive and relevant in Britain today and across the world.

Performed at the intimate Lantern Theatre Liverpool, this is a depiction not to be missed.

Performance Dates:
Friday 21st March 7.30pm
Saturday 22nd March 1.30pm and 7.30pm

Tickets: £7 and £5 concession.

Tickets available from:

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd
