Set in 1692 in Massachusetts, the play centres on the reign of terror unleashed during the Salem witchcraft trials - Miller famously wrote it as a thinly veiled response to the 20th-century "anti-American" communist witch-hunts of Senator Joseph McCarthy.
The cast includes Emily Taaffe (Abigail Williams), Patrick O'Kane (John Proctor), Emma Cunniffe (Elizabeth Proctor), Oliver Ford Davies (Deputy-Governor Danforth), Lucy May Barker (Mercy Lewis) Patrick Godfrey (Giles Corey), Susan Engel (Rebecca Nurse) and Christopher Fulford (Reverend Parris).
