Rickmansworth Players have come up with an extra dimension to their production of Arthur Miller’s coded Cold War-era tale of hysteria and suspicion, The Crucible, which will be stated at the Pump House Theatre in Watford from next Tuesday.

They spent a day in a woodland location filming scenes of alleged witchcraft to be used as flashbacks during the performance.
