Get out of town for The Crucible

Two Planks and a Passion Theatre move you with this 50-year-old tale of intolerance, corruption and vengeance.

Arthur Miller's classic, thought-provoking work The Crucible is even more powerful when set in an eerily atmospheric copse at Ross Creek. The three-hour-long play simply flies by as one gets drawn into the dark and disturbing world of the Salem Witch Trials. Graham Percy does a memorable turn as the gravely conflicted John Proctor and he is well-matched by Kathryn MacLellan as his straight-laced wife Elizabeth. Katie Swift is perfect as the sharp and scheming Abigail and Emma Slipp simply shines as the simple, easily swayed Mary. Prepare to be moved and disturbed by this 50-year-old tale of intolerance, corruption and vengeance. And even if you've seen The Crucible before, you've never seen it produced by Two Planks and a Passion. It's theatre that you don't want to miss.
