Rehearsal images released for this electrifying new production!

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.

The National Theatre is delighted to release rehearsal images for the highly anticipated West End transfer of director Lyndsey Turner’s acclaimed production of The Crucible.  With set designed by Es Devlin, this contemporary new staging of Arthur Miller’s gripping parable of power and its abuse will play at the Gielgud Theatre from 7 June until 2 September. 

Milly Alcock (House of the Dragon) will play the role of Abigail Williams with Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex) playing the role of Elizabeth Proctor and Brian Gleeson (BAFTA Award-winning Bad Sisters) in the role of John Proctor. Joining the previously announced cast is Karl Johnson as Giles Corey, Christopher Birch, Lucy Brindle, Grace Farrell, Chyna-Rose Frederick, Miya James, Ebony Jonelle, Tama Phethean, Amy Snudden, Nia Towle and Samuel Townsend. Also returning to the production are Fisayo Akinade (Romeo & Juliet) as Reverend Hale and Matthew Marsh (Dunkirk) as Danforth. Completing the cast are David Ahmad, Zoë Aldrich, Stephanie Beattie, Raphael Bushay, Henry Everett, Nick Fletcher, Colin Haigh, Nadine Higgin, Gracie McGonigal, Alastair Parker, Joy Tan and Tilly Tremayne
