Texts in the City: The Crucible

Texts in the City: The Crucible

In the second of our Texts In The City series - casting a critical eye over the VCE English list - we visit Arthur Miller’s classic play, The Crucible.

Discussing the text, Tony Wilson and William Henderson explore the language and symbolism that makes the play “a joy to act” — and draw parallels to the youth-led revolutions of the contemporary age.

Presented by Tony Wilson and William Henderson.

This text was also discussed in 2012; view that session here.
