Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts presents The Crucible

Arthur Miller’s gripping play The Crucible brought vividly to life.

“I am innocent to a witch. I know not what a witch is.”

The Crucible by Arthur Miller is performed by the Classical and Contemporary Acting Students on the Drama Foundation at Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts.

Common vengeance writes the law in the Puritan town of Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. Rumours and suspicions of witchcraft become inflamed, and accusations, once voiced in public, tend to stick, however much they are denied. 

Miller’s powerful tragedy based on the Salem witch trials is evoked through an ensemble cast of diverse origins, interpreting the power of the words both as a spoken and shared physical language. Intertwining movement, imagery and the emotionally charged writing of Miller. The company of actors deliver a thrilling narrative revolving around the accused and the accusing, and their fates.

“I speak my own sins; I cannot judge another.”

The play speaks to every conflict between an individual conscience and tyranny. Will corruption and selfish motivation rule the day? Or will personal integrity and a wider responsibility for others prevail? Can guilt be transformed into accountability?

Judgement awaits…
