BRISBANE ARTS THEATRE PRESENT-
Set during the Salem witch trials, a puritan society believes in the power of darkness, and its ability to wreak havoc and destruction if it is unleashed.
The Crucible follows the Puritans and their discomfort in the changes of the world. As more and more innocent women are arrested and tried, the horrific potential for terror and hysteria in the face of uncertainty is released.
Resonating as a current and timely warning against irrational thinking, this story uncovers the threat of religious fundamentalism and even the potential of fake news.
