Richard Armitage stars in Yael Farber's powerful production of Arthur Miller's timeless witch hunt parable.Fear and suspicion have gripped the small community of Salem in 17th century Massachusetts. A cauldron of lust and superstition, combined with greed and personal grievance, boils over into accusations of witchcraft. It all builds to a shocking courtroom showdown! Great American playwright Arthur Miller's fictionalised version of the Salem Witch Trials was written in 1953, at the height of McCarthyism. But its themes of false accusation and mob justice remain just as frighteningly relevant today. Stage and screen star Richard Armitage, of 'The Hobbit' fame, leads the cast of award-winning South African director Yael Farber's new production for the Old Vic. Critics were rapturous in their praise. The Guardian's reviewer noted that Farber "preserves the integrity of Miller's language while investing the action with a raw, visceral power I've never witnessed".
