A Sport for Jove production

The classic masterpiece of 20th century drama.
By Arthur Miller

Arthur Miller’s parable about ignorance and fear is one of the most transcendent and important stories of any age.

One of the finest plays in the theatre canon, The Crucible explores the 17th Century Salem witch trials in colonial Massachusetts. Brilliantly presented as a metaphor for the McCarthy inquiry into communism that Arthur Miller was living through at the time of writing, the work shines a spotlight on how hysteria and paranoia can drive a society to abandon its principles, and enact terrible, irreversible injustices.

Made ever more poignant in this age of rumour, outrage and ‘fake news’, Sport for Jove’s critically-acclaimed production directed by Damien Ryan (Cyrano de Bergerac) is delivered by an explosive ensemble cast featuring a powerful performance from Anthony Gooley (Calamity Jane, A View from the Bridge).
