Newbridge Drama Group is back, this time taking on Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible.
It is a story of tender love and murderous jealousy; of lives destroyed by false accusations; of passion and adultery and sin and of a storm of terror let loose through the effects of real and pretended mass hysteria on the part of a number of young girls. Finally, it contains a portrait of the most tender love between two people which has rarely been bettered on the stage.
Today, we are all too aware of the terrible damage which innocent people suffer when they are made the victims of false accusations. In that sense, The Crucible is all too tragically a play for these times.
