‘You’re either with us, or against us, there is no road between.’

A community gripped by fear, infighting and hysteria sees religion, vendetta, lust and superstition catch fire and burn through it, destroying the moral foundations on which it claimed to be built.

This fresh production of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece could not be more timely in re-examining the culture of fear and scapegoating in his dramatisation of the Salem witch trials.
