You can’t help but see politics at work in Arthur Miller’s classic play, the Crucible. But if you couldn’t catch see the play in its run at the Old Vic -or you did, and you want to see it again -then you could pop along to the Exeter Picturehouse for a screening.
Richard Armitage stars in the drama, based on Salem’s infamous witch trials, directed by YaÃ«l Farber.
In a small, tight-knit community in Salem, Massachusetts, personal grievances collide with lust and superstition, fuelling widespread hysteria. Miller’s timeless parable attacks the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations.
Captured live at the Old Vic, London, during the show’s 2014 season, it will screen on the big screen at the Exeter Picturehouse cinema on Thursday 4 December at 8.30pm and Thursday 18 December at noon.
Full price £15, Members £12, Concessions £13, and you can get them from the Exeter Picturehouse site.
