The Salem Witch Trials come alive in Arthur Miller’s masterpiece, “The Crucible,” playing on the Lincoln Theater big screen, Thursday, March 9 at 7 p.m. and Friday, March 10 at 2 p.m.
This gripping revival, presented by The National Theatre, was captured from a live performance on the Olivier stage, the largest of The National’s three theaters located in the UK. Under the direction of Lyndsey Turner, this “5 star-scorcher” (The Sunday Times) is a must-see contemporary production of one of the most notable works of the last century.
A witch hunt is beginning in this captivating parable of power from playwright Arthur Miller (“Death of a Salesman,” “A View from the Bridge”). Following the Salem Witch Trials, the townsfolk fall into paranoid chaos. Raised to be seen but not heard, a group of young women in Salem suddenly find their words have an almighty power. As a climate of fear, vendetta, and accusation spreads through the community, no one is safe. Leading the all-star cast are Erin Doherty (The Crown) as Abigail Williams and Brendan Cowell (Yerma) as John Procter. With a stunning set from Tony-Award Winner Es Devlin (The Lehman Trilogy), “The Crucible” provides a spectacle perfect for the big screen, including rain that weeps in between scenes, a backdrop that occasionally lights up to feature characters in the foreground, and a gleaming hard tiled floor which feels fittingly Puritan. And with National Theatre Live, you always have the best seat in the house!
“The Crucible,” is playing for two screenings only at Damariscotta’s historic Lincoln Theater, Thursday, March 9 at 7 p.m. and Friday, March 10 at 2 p.m..
