Sterts is live at the witch trial

July 17, 2013


ONE OF theatre's most compelling, classic dramas comes to Cornwall this summer in a new production of intensity and power.

The Crucible has become a modern classic in the decades since its first performance in 1953. Arthur Miller's chronicle of the 17th- century Salem witch trials in New England is a thrilling, moving piece of theatre in its own right and at the same time a powerful argument for freedom of speech.

Sterts Theatre Company brings an exciting new production of The Crucible to Cornwall's openair moorland theatre, Sterts, at Upton Cross.

Directed by Nigel Croft, The Crucible reconnects with the very roots of Sterts itself - the play was one of the first productions by the Linkinhorne Players, from which Sterts was formed, and was last performed there in the 1980s.

You can catch future performances on Monday and then on August 12, 13, 18, 21 and 27 and September 4 and 5. ? Gloucestershire's acclaimed Festival Players will uncork the magic of A Midsummer Night's Dream in Cornwall this Sunday at Sterts.

Tickets for the 6pm show are available on (01579) 362382, price Pounds 12 adults, Pounds 10 concessions and Pounds 8 children. There's lots more information available on
