The Open Air theatre takes on Arthur Miller's most famous play. Read More >

Set amid the Salem witch hunts of the 1600s, The Crucible, arguably Arthur Miller’s greatest play, sees a community divided by jealousy and superstition. As witchcraft hysteria takes hold, choices have to be made: conform to survive or uphold your beliefs whatever the consequences.

Following last season’s The Importance Of Being Earnest, the Open Air theatre allows another classic play to find a new voice, providing a unique setting in the leafy environs of Regent’s Park.
