As part of the New Forest Arts Festival, Forest Forge Youth Theatre presents Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. This gothic tale about the Salem witch trials in 1692 contains themes that are still relevant today. Tyranny, fear and passion are the forces behind this vivid story about extreme religious views and the fight for power, all of which resonate in today’s world.
Using song and movement, Forest Forge Youth Theatre brings its inimitable ensemble style to this great play in a new outdoor version.
Lucy Phillips, Youth Theatre Director says, “This extraordinary play which explores such huge issues as bigotry and intolerance, never fails to surprise us in rehearsal with its relevance in today’s society. The young cast are fearless in their approach”
