The notorious Salem witch trials of 1692 were brought back to life as our Drama Scholars performed three sold out evenings of the American classic ‘The Crucible’ last week.
Emmet McDonnell took on the role of the play’s protagonist, John Proctor, a part played on Broadway by both Oscar winner, Liam Neeson, and Skyfall star, Ben Whishaw. Harry Gilby, who starred in the Olivier Award-nominated West End production of The Full Monty, is the Reverend Samuel Parris, appointed a prosecutor in the trial of those accused of witchcraft. The role of Abigail Williams, Parris’ niece who instigates the witch trials by falsely accusing others of witchcraft, was taken by Sophie Draper.
Mrs Ward, Director of Drama here at Trent College, said: “This was a challenging piece of work, performed by our Drama Scholars, and showcased the talents that they all have to offer”.
