April play: The Crucible

Our next production, on 4th, 5th and 6th of April, will be The Crucible by Arthur Miller, directed by Ruth Ahmed. Performances start at 8:00pm at the Tilford Institute.

It is the Summer 1692, and the petty revenge of wronged lover Abigail Williams proves to be the spark that lights the well-stoked fire of paranoia amongst the repressed townsfolk of Salem, Massachusetts, resulting in the famous witch-hunts.

Arthur Miller's award-winning 1953 drama was widely seen as an allegory of the wave of anti-communism sweeping the U.S. at the time, and has lost none of its resonance today.

If you are interested in performing or helping with the production, please email Ruth on crucible-director@tilbourneplayers.org.uk
