National Theatre Live – The Crucible

National Theatre Live – The Crucible

Last week over 80 students from Year 12 Drama and English attended an excursion at Palace Nova East End cinema to watch London’s National Theatre production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. Students were treated to a gripping and compelling production with fine acting and amazing set, props, sound and lighting. Students enjoyed the opportunity to look back at the 1690’s Salem witch trials and to discuss McCarthyism as well as connections to the #metoo movement. AsStacy Schiff states in her 2015 book: The Witches: Salem, 1692 “The New England woman had no political rights. She neither voted nor served on juries. [She was] Officially voiceless. Many of our students were curious to learn how much of Miller’s play is true. It turns out that all of The Crucible’s characters are drawn from history, most of them fairly accurately.
