Lyndsey Turner (Hamlet) directs a contemporary new staging of The Crucible, designed by Tony Award-winner Es Devlin (The Lehman Trilogy). The performance was captured live from the Olivier stage at the National Theatre.

A witch hunt is beginning and, raised to be seen but not heard, a group of young women in Salem suddenly find their words have an almighty power. As a climate of fear, vendetta and accusation spreads through the community, no one is safe from trial.

Puccini's Turandot is a glorious pageant of rich colour, dance and drama in Andrei Serban's classic staging.

The score is rich in musical marvels - featuring the famous aria Nessun dorma - while the production draws on Chinese theatrical traditions to evoke a colourful fantasy tableau of ancient Peking.

South Mill Arts is also showing Empire of Light, the Sam Mendes-directed film about the duty manager of a seaside cinema struggling with her mental health starring Olivia Colman, on Thursday March 30.
