OLD VIC THEATRE
THE CRUCIBLE (play)
Ends 13th September 2014.
Captioned performances: 26th July 2014 at 2.30pm and 12th August 2014 at
Audio Described performance: 12th August 2014 at 7.30pm
Bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "burning with injustice," as
every school-monkey bored ridged by a rubbish teacher knows, this is the
Arthur "I pulled Marilyn" Miller commentary on McCarthyism set during the
Salem Witch Trials.
Not available. Reports are mixed. Some find the 3 hours 30 minutes running
time too long, others feel it flies by with a searing performance from leading
man Richard Armitage. The in-the-round closeness to the audience and scariness
of the teenage jury are also in the production's favour for some. Jack Ellis as
witch-hunter Danforth is also named, as is Adrian Schiller as John Hale.
A few find it far too long and over-blown, but for most the indulgencies of
the director are tolerated thanks to the counterbalancing of the drama created.
For those wishing to spend a long hot summer evening in a boiling cauldron, this
could be the perfect ticket.
