The cast is complete for the previously announced West End transfer of Oliver winner Lyndsey Turner's Olivier-nominated production of The Crucible. Arriving at the Gielgud Theatre from London's National Theatre, the run will begin June 7 and open June 15. Set to play a strictly limited run through September 2, the production previously announced House of the Dragon's Milly Alcock will star as Abigail Williams.
Joining her in Miller's take on the United States' 1692 Salem Witch Trials will be Brian Gleeson (Peaky Blinders) as John Proctor, Caitlin FitzGerald (Succession) as Elizabeth Proctor, and Ron Cook (Hot Fuzz) as Giles Corey. Reprising their roles from the sold-out run at the National Theatre will be Fisayo Akinade (Romeo & Juliet) as Reverend Hale and Matthew Marsh (Dunkirk) as Danforth.
The cast will also feature returning members David Ahmad, Zoë Aldrich, Stephanie Beattie, Raphael Bushay, Henry Everett, Nick Fletcher, Colin Haigh, Nadine Higgin, Gracie McGonigal, Alastair Parker, Joy Tan, and Tilly Tremayne. Completing the cast will be Christopher Birch, Lucy Brindle, Grace Farrell, Chyna-Rose Frederick, Miya James, Ebony Jonelle, Tama Phethean, Amy Snudden, Nia Towle, and Samuel Townsend.
The Crucible explores how one village descends into fear as private vendettas become public accusations and a group of young women's words gain power.
Turner helms the creative team which includes Tony-winning set designer Es Devlin, costume designer Catherine Fay, lighting designer Tim Lutkin, sound designers Tingying Dong and Christopher Shutt, composer and arranger Caroline Shaw, and music director and arranger Osnat Schmool. Casting is by Alastair Coomer and Naomi Downham. They are joined by fight director Bret Yount, intimacy directors Ita O’Brien and Louise Kempton, voice and dialect coach Kate Godfrey, dialect coaches Danièle Lydon and Hazel Holder, and resident director Sophie Dillon Moniram.
Olivier winner Lyndsey Turner's production of The Crucible originally ran at the National Theatre last fall (read the reviews here). It was nominated for the Olivier for Best Revival and Lutkin was nominated for Best Lighting Design.
