About This Show

The National Theatre’s acclaimed new production of The Crucible transfers to the West End this June for a strictly limited season, featuring Milly Alcock (House of the Dragon) as Abigail Williams, Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex) as Elizabeth Proctor, and Brian Gleeson (Bad Sisters) as John Proctor.

Olivier Award-winner Lyndsey Turner directs this electrifying new production with set design by Es Devlin in a ‘magnificent restaging’ (The Telegraph) of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece, a gripping parable of power and its abuse.

A witch hunt is beginning in Salem…

Raised to be seen but not heard, a group of young women suddenly find their words have a terrible power. As a climate of fear spreads through the community, private vendettas fuel public accusations and soon the truth itself is on trial.

“A gripping revival of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece.
The National Theatre at its best.”
The Telegraph

“A five-star scorcher.”
The Sunday Times

“Miller’s Crucible burns bright once more.”
Evening Standard

“Stark and stunning… a beautiful production.”
Financial Times
