Happy #Halloween🎃 A good time to watch the play ‘The Crucible’ by Arthur Miller about the Salem witch trials! Taken from our National Theatre collection.
The Crucible is a dramatized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692/93. Arthur Miller wrote the play in 1953 as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists.
The theater’s name is set in ATF Stencil, apparently to echo the shapes of the NT logo, which was designed by Ian Dennis at FHK Henrion’s London studio, HDA International in 1974, and introduced in 1976.
