Witches and Ghouls: Newry Drama Festival

Tonight, Saturday it’s the turn of Waterford’s Ballyduff with the classic ‘The Crucible’ by Arthur Millar.

The classic parable of mass hysteria draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witch hunt and the McCartheyism of ’50s America.

The play is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusation – anywhere and any time!

Tomorrow night we have a new and very shocking version of R L Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.  It is played by Nenagh, Tipperary, who are very welcome to Newry after their very long journey.

Turn out to greet them.

Please.
