The Crucible at the Grand Theatre

by City Savvy Luxembourg

Enter the world of the Salem witch trials: a world of sensationalism, hysteria and the power of celebrity, and ask yourself how innocent we can be as we stand by and watch the drama unfold.

In 17th Century Salem, a society defined by intolerance and patriarchy, a group of teenage girls are discovered conjuring spirits. Sordid accusations of witchcraft soon fly thick and fast as the girls play judge, jury and executioner – destroying lives and changing a community forever. As recent political developments in America threaten a return to the witch-hunting politics of the 1960s, Arthur Miller’s terrifying allegorical comment on McCarthyism is compulsive viewing.

Douglas Rintoul is always welcome at the Théâtres de la Ville. Not only does he deliver productions of the highest quality time and time again (Design for living, Closer, Invisible, As you like it), he is also committed to continuously developing his relationship with the venue. Now artistic director at The Queens in Hornchurch, he was immediately keen to co-produce Arthur Millerʼs masterpiece The Crucible with the Grand Théâtre and include actors from Luxembourg in a production that will embark on an extensive UK-tour.
