This summer’s production of ‘The Crucible’ at the Old Vic is being shown in cinemas across the UK by the Digital Theatre initiative.
This will be the first time that Digital Theatre has collaborated with the Old Vic. The recording will be distributed by Cinema Live to over 350 cinemas across the nation on the 4th and 7th of December, extending the reach of one of this year’s best productions.
Richard Armitage’s performance has been lauded as one of “London’s best” in his role as John Proctor. The production, which was performed in the round, will extend the reach of “the best British theatre” and allow Yaël Farber’s image of Arthur Miller’s great work be shown to thousands at cinema prices.
Digital Theatre works together with the best British theatrical companies to record and distribute top quality theatre to the UK and the rest of the world. Plays and performances can be rented or bought online for the same price as renting a movie. The company was launched in 2009 and has achieved incredible success in making theatre available to everyone. The company has made theatre on screen a creative and accessible reality.
