The Crucible description

Set amid the Salem witch hunts, 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 the 2009 success of The Importance of Being Earnest, the unique setting of the Open Air Theatre allows another classic to find a new voice. Directed by Artistic Director, Timothy Sheader, experience the breathtaking climax of The Crucible as the narrative darkens under the night sky.

Theatre policy relating to cancelled performances to inclement weather:


The auditorium and stage are completely uncovered. Every effort to complete the performance will be made and the theatre reserves the right to stop and start the action as necessary. Performances are never cancelled or abandoned before the advertised starting time and then only in the event of very bad weather.


If cancellation or abandonment is unavoidable, ticket holders will be entitled to equivalent seats for any other performance in the main season (excludes comedy and music events), subject to availability. Original tickets for a performance that has been cancelled can be exchanged directly with the box office at the Open Air Theatre for another performance.


Refunds are not given for cancellation or abandonment as a result of the weather.
