Part of: Season of the Witch

By Arthur Miller
Directed by Geraldine Alexander

Arthur Miller’s classic American thriller and one of the greatest plays of the 20th Century.

Lust, superstition, mindless hysteria – Miller’s chillingly relevant tale is of indiscriminate persecution, sensationalised witch-hunts, and the terror of the falsely accused. The internationally-acclaimed actor and director Geraldine Alexander directs for Storyhouse.
