The Crucible by Arthur Millar at Pitlochry

20th June to 27th September (various times and days)
The Crucible by Arthur Miller
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Port-Na-Craig Rd, Pitlochry PH16 5DR
For the puritanical folk of Salem, Massachusetts, the news that their young women have been conjuring spirits in the forest is devastating. It means the devil is amongst them. And the devil must be hunted down and driven out, whatever the cost. Fear and suspicion spirals quickly out of control, unleashing a murderous powder keg of accusations, hysteria, lust and revenge. Arthur Miller’s 1953 play is one of the most powerful pieces of 20th century theatre. Written as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the US government persecuted its citizens for being communists, this parable of politics, religious fervour and fear is a masterpiece which still resonates in the 21st Century. Tickets: from £16.00 PLUS groups offers, family tickets and concessions. Box Office Tel:- 01796 484626
