Sydney Morning Herald review of The Crucible

The Crucible review: flawless casting in a mature interpretation in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Richard Armitage (late of The Hobbit and Spooks) was born to play John Proctor, with his craggy looks and capacity for repressed, then explosive, anger. It is a fine, masterful performance and Yaël Farber ensures that it is never merely idealised.
