School production 'The Crucible'

A fantastic cast of Weald actors performed to a full school hall, for our end of year production of Arthur Miller’s 'The Crucible'. The play is a fictionalised version of events which took place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692-3. In the story, Abigail, the minister’s niece (played by Year 12 student Lily Niblett), accuses several local women of witchcraft, and a witch hunt ensues. It’s a challenging and gripping play, and highlights how intolerance and hysteria can tear a community apart.

A cast of 20+ students, headed by George Craig and Abbie Howe playing John and Elizabeth Proctor, worked tirelessly on their parts, and their hard work really paid off. The final performances, which ran for 3 nights, were very well received by a large audience of students, parents and members of our community.  Special thanks to the crew, box office team and of course all the parents, who supported the students throughout, and helped to make this production such a success.
