Sheffield Theatres announces new shows for 2024 including new production of The Crucible

Sheffield Theatres has announced a new line up of shows for early 2024.

From heartfelt dramas to thought-provoking plays, these performances promise to bring a diverse range of stories to the stage.

In the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield Theatres will present a new revival of Arthur Miller’s timeless masterpiece, The Crucible from 2 – 30 March 2024.

Associate Artistic Director Anthony Lau, known for his work in productions like Miss Saigon and Anna Karenina, will bring the true events of the infamous Salem witch trials to life.

In the Tanya Moiseiwitsch Playhouse, Wish You Weren’t Here runs from 24 January – 10 February 2024.

Katie Redford’s latest play, Wish You Weren’t Here, directed by Theatre Centre Artistic Director Rob Watt, explores the challenges of growing up, single parenthood and finding one’s way in the world as women. Co-produced by Sheffield Theatres and Theatre Centre.

Following will be Lines (27 February – 9 March 2024), a play created by Junaid Sarieddeen, John Rwothomack, Fidaa Zidan and Alexandra Aron, with additional writing by Asiimwe Deborah Kawe.

This production delves into the connections between five prisons over five decades in Uganda, Palestine, and the UK. It offers a unique look at post-colonial life through stories from these divergent yet parallel worlds. Lines will be co-produced by Sheffield Theatres and Roots Mbili Theatre.

Robert Hastie, Artistic Director of Sheffield Theatres, said: “With this new season of shows, we are delighted to share with audiences bold new work in the Playhouse, and a timeless classic on our Crucible stage.”
