‘WITCHES Can’t Be Burned’ is the latest offering from Stratford Youth Theatre.
The play by Sylva Semerciyan has been written specially for the National Theatre’s Connections Festival – a nationwide celebration of new plays for young people.
Set against the backdrop of students performing Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, the play explores the changing perceptions of gender, protest and equality, putting Miller’s iconic play, its relevance and its politics on trial.
Theatre co-founder Sarah Plowright said: “Our 16 talented cast members are tackling this evocative, challenging new play with guts and pathos and I just know audiences are going to love it. It’s been really interesting to look again at The Crucible, told through a modern lens and, as a company we’re delighted to be part of this fantastic initiative from the National Theatre.”
The group will be performing the play at Warwick Arts Centre on March 14.
