A tale of cruelty, power and deceit

Edward Caruana Galizia, Stephen Oliver and Michael Mangion in The Crucible.

A new production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible will be running at the Manoel Theatre from today until Sunday.

Miller’s intense response to the McCarthy trials in the 1950s, The Crucible remains relevant today as it is a play about cruelty, power and deceit, but also about love. It is set in an atmosphere where fear is used as political tool, where outside threats are invented to explain current woes, where scapegoats are identified, hunted down and judged, and where truth holds no currency.

The play is directed by Sean Buhagiar and features a set design by artist Austin Camilleri, costumes by Sef Farrugia, lights by Moritz Zavan Stoeckle, and sound  by Maltese composer Yasmin Kuymizakis.

The cast also features 25 actors from three generations, spanning from known theatre veterans to emerging local talent. These include Edward Caruana Galizia, Michael Mangion, Nadia Vella, Kenneth Spiteri and Simone Ellul.

The Crucible runs at the Manoel Theatre daily from today till Sunday at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased online at www.teatrumanoel.com.mt, [email protected] or by telephone on 2124 6389.
