The Guildhall School events podcast returns as we talk to the cast and crew of The Crucible, one of our drama productions this autumn term. In this episode, we talk to lighting designer Chris Needle and cast members Caleb Roberts and Mary Galloway about this production of Arthur Miller's disturbing yet thrilling take on the Salem Witch-hunts of 1692 which still resonates today with the threat we face from irrational ideologies and mass hysteria. The creative team is made up of director Mike Alfreds, designer Amelia Jane Hankin, lighting designer Chris Needle* and sound designer Sean Mortimer* (*students on the BA (Hons) Technical Theatre Arts programme). The Crucible runs in the Milton Court Studio Theatre from 17-22 October 2016. Tickets available from the Barbican Box Office: Intro and outro music is Little Lily Swing by Tri-Tachyon, licenced under Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 (
