Ulverston Outsiders are already making plans for next year and are intending to stage Arthur Miller's best-known play, 'The Crucible' in Spring 2020.
The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692–93.
Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists.
Miller was questioned by the House of Representatives' Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to identify others present at meetings he had attended.
The Outsiders are having a reading of this wonderful play on Thursday September 26th at 7pm – at Friends Meeting House, Meeting House Lane, Ulverston
Do please spread the word and come if you can. New members are always welcome. There is a cast of 20 so plenty of scope!!
