Witches Can’t Be Burned

Book Now

St. Paul’s has won the Playfest competition three years in a row by selecting recognised classics and producing them just as the masters intended. It’s a tried and trusted formula. With straight-A student and drama nerd Anuka cast as Abigail Williams in The Crucible, the school seems on course for a record-breaking triumph. What could possibly go wrong?

But as rehearsals gain momentum, Anuka has an epiphany and starts to question the text. The scene is set for a confrontation of epic proportions as Anuka seeks to break with tradition before tradition breaks her, and all young women like her, and reality begins to take on the ominous hue of Arthur Miller’s fictionalised Salem.
