Share the Crucible Experience!


Are you excited about Richard Armitage’s forthcoming stint on the Old Vic stage as lead actor for “The Crucible”? We certainly are and have created this blog as a platform for fans by fans to share their thoughts, experiences, stories and reviews of Richard Armitage in “The Crucible”.

This is what we envisage:

  • a hub to collect any kind of Crucible experience – photos, reviews, thoughts, ideas, comments
  • a platform for theatre-going commentators who have no blog of their own but would like to share their Crucible experience
  • a place to share information relating to the Old Vic’s “The Crucible”
  • a portal to interact with other fans and possibly even arrange fan meet-ups
  • a resource for referring back to once the run of the play is over

This is how it works:

  • you blog – you send us the link to your blog – we reblog, or repost, or link to your post
  • you don’t blog – you send us your submission (text, photos) – we post on your behalf
  • you can also leave submissions as a “comment” on the “Contact/Submit” page of TCE – we post it in the blog
  • any language, any format, anonymous or by name


  • because we want to share the experience with those who attend and those who can’t
  • because we are willingly good, extra good, extra peaceful and extra generous

Let’s get cracking!

  1. Great launch, Guylty. I would also add that those who want to contribute a word or two can also do it by just posting a comment on the submit/contact page ( link on top right). We will cut and paste the comment onto a post page. Can’t wait to read what you all have to say. #SharetheCrucibleExperience – we’re off and running.

    • Great – sorry, only realised late that the blog theme must be the same as your blog’s. Hope you don’t mind?
      I’ll take your suggestion on board and change that.
      If you want, you can try getting into the back end. I have made you author of the blog, so you should be able to access it.

      • I don’t think it’s the same. Anyway, it doesn’t look the same – but that’s probably why I like it. Mine is tomato – remember? . I linked to share with Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook. I wonder if you can do the same -whether it will take two different share sites?

  2. Reblogged this on Armitage Agonistes and commented:

    Here it is! Our designated blog for #SharetheCrucibleExperience. The procedure is easy as pie – blog, link, write a post and email it, or even just comment on the Submit/Contact page. If you have your own blog, we’d love to link your experience posts here. Same with Facebook Pages. You can write as little or as much as you like – impressions, critiques, detailed analysis, or just describe how you swooned. We want to share it all.

    • The idea was Perry’s, btw. I am just the mere executor πŸ˜€
      Weren’t there tickets for the previews available? I thought it was merely a misnomer for the first week of playing…

  3. That’s awesome! I can’t wait to read all the stories! I won’t be able to attend to the play, but at least I will ease my mind with this blog. πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  4. Thankyou ladies for setting this up, I am looking forward so much to reading people’s stories. Since I can’t see The Crucible myself, the next best thing is that fellow fans are going and I will be able to experience it vicariously. πŸ™‚

  6. Thanks for this. Those of us who can’t quite justify a trip to London to see a play (even one starring Richard…what would the husband say?), will greatly appreciate living vicariously through those of you who are fortunate enough to see it! So envious!

  7. This is the best idea! I’m hoping that fans who are in London at the same time arrange their own meetups and tell us about those, too, not just the play. One of my favorite vicarious experiences last year was reading a Tweet that a bunch of fans were having dinner together in Sydney (Popcorn Taxi event) with a cutout Thorin at the head of the table. I live for this ridiculousness! And is anyone making a side trip to North & South locations, huh, huh?

    • Completely agree with you, Besotted! The fan experience is most definitely part of the wider Crucible experience, and I do hope that contributors will talk about that, too…
      N&S locations – nice idea… But possibly too far up from London?
