Betty Parris lies in a trance after a childish game spins out of control, and accusations of witchcraft are quickly manipulated by those with something to gain. However, when false allegations reach fever pitch, the devout community of Salem, Massachusetts descends into a cauldron of hysteria, manipulation and paranoia it can never return from.
Written in the 1950s when the insidious fear of communism gripped America, ‘The Crucible’ is a devastating portrayal of the human cost of tyranny and vengeance.
Arthur Miller’s (Death of A Salesman, A View From The Bridge, All My Sons) masterpiece ‘The Crucible’ is an intense and timeless work inspired by the 1692 witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts and is brought to life at Altrincham Garrick Playhouse by MYT Productions as part of MYT’S 10th Anniversary Season.

Meighan Youth Theatre (MYT) Productions
Celebrating 10 Years of Youth Productions in Manchester!
Producing high quality, stage productions whilst developing and training young talent in the Manchester area…
Meighan Youth Theatre (MYT) Productions was founded in 2009 when two 15 year old schools boys from Trafford were given council funding to create a theatrical project for young people and since then, MYT has never looked back.
Originally known as Meighan and Hodgins Productions, we rebranded in 2011. Having staged large scale, high quality productions every year since the company was formed, MYT has gone from strength to strength and has given young people the opportunity to perform, develop skills, work behind the scenes and be part of a production team.
Many past members have gone on to study at various Drama Schools in London and across the country such as Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, Central School of Speech and Drama, PPA, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, GSA, London School of Musical Theatre and various other prestigious schools.
At Meighan Youth Theatre, it is important to us to give our performers the most professional experience possible; meaning they don’t just get to be part of fully-fledged production, but they get the training required to start the foundations of exciting theatrical careers.
