“Much of the team behind ‘This Beautiful Future’ are reunited for Jay Miller’s gender-swapped take on Arthur Miller’s play about the 17th century Salem witch trials. Miller’s production, which casts a woman in the role of Proctor, updates the play to examine ideas of distrust and hysteria in the contemporary world and how we conduct civil discourse. Miller has had one hit after another at this brilliant Hackney Wick theatre so it should be a belter.”

Overview

You’re a witch.
No I’m not.
You’re a witch.
No I’m not.
You’re a witch.
Stop saying that.
You’re a witch.
You’re scaring me.
You’re a witch.
You’re a witch.
You’re a witch.
Am I?
Am I a witch?
You’re a witch.


So are you.

A story from the past brought crashing into the present. A world in which lies and truth are indistinguishable. Where hatreds and desires are born, confessed, revenged.
