Students have started the summer term with rehearsals of the play ‘The Crucible’ which they will tour to venues in the North East and Edinburgh.
Written by American playwright Arthur Millar, ‘The Crucible’ is hailed as a classic and studied by young people all over the world. It tells the story of the Salem witch trials that took place in Massachusetts in the 17th century. With this as its subject, the play feels very relevant to Drumduan and to the area, because of Moray and specifically Cluny Hilltop’s notorious history as the site of the execution of so-called witches.
Students have been working extremely hard on the play, under the direction of drama teacher Kirsteen Wallace, in preparation for performances at Nairn Little Theatre on Thursday 30th April at 7.30 pm and at Forres Town Hall on Saturday 2nd May at 7.30 pm, before they go on to venues in Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
