DMU AND CURVE THEATRE
PRESENT
Arthur Miller's
The Crucible

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY, CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION

Our collaboration with the Curve theatre continues to provide our students the opportunity to work and perform in a professional environment. This years’ production is of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, an interpretation of the brutal McCarthyism of American politics in the 1950s, the art of making accusations without proper regard for the evidence. With division and exclusion recurring themes, this post-truth play holds particular significance in today’s wider world.

In previous years, as part of our association with Curve, Drama Studies and Performing Arts students have performed in: A Clockwork Orange (2017) by Anthony Burgess; Our Day Out (2016) by Willy Russell; Our Country's Good (2015) by Timberlake Wertenbaker; Mother Clap's Molly House (2014), by Mark Ravenhill; Fen and Serious Money (2013) by Caryl Churchill; The Laramie Project (2012), by Tectonic Theater; Greek and East (2011), two plays by iconic British playwright Steven Berkoff.

The project provides an exciting opportunity for our students to work on challenging theatrical texts within a professional environment.

As part of the collaboration, students also gain valuable experience as assistant directors and assistant stage managers.

Drama Studies and Performing Arts students have also been cast in leading and support roles in other major productions at Curve as part of Curve's Young Company and its annual Community Production.
