Caroline Steinbeis

Director for Stage and Screen


The Crucible
by Arthur Miller
for The Royal Exchange Manchester, 2015

“ Try to see this visionary work while you can. It warrants a standing ovation.”
**** Manchester Evening News

“Steinbeis changes the temperature of the room.
Fingers-down-blackboard stuff.
Maybe it’s always Miller time.”
**** What’s on Stage

“Director Caroline Steinbeis’s version is full of power and hysteria and pulls the audience into a world of tension and fear.”
****Daily Post

“This visionary production of this Arthur Miller classic, certainly blows the cobwebs off the familiar text that I studied at secondary school”
**** Upstaged Manchester

“This production creates powerful images that stay with the viewer long after they’ve left the theatre.”
