Course overview

Enjoy unpacking this wonderful play, guided by a RADA tutor.

The Crucible

“Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist party?” These were the chilling words of the House Committee on Un-American Activities hearings in 1950s America. Playwright Arthur Miller was himself a victim; and RADA tutor Salvatore Sorce, investigates Miller’s blistering response to the menace of state terrorism. Contributing will be RADA graduate, Syrus Lowe, who recently played Reverend Parris in a radical and much-acclaimed production of The Crucible at the Yard Theatre.

This short course will fascinate anyone interested in just what makes a ‘great play’ great. No specialist knowledge is required, but you should be prepared to read portions of texts, as these courses are both practical as well as discursive; and the “act of acting” will play a key part in discovering the way the plays work.

Reading material

In advance of the course starting, please ensure you have read a copy of the play, and have one to hand during the course. You may wish to purchase The Crucible (Student Editions) Paperback – 30 April 2010, by Arthur Miller.
