Operation Crucible

Past Events

‘Sheffield was on fire. It was glowing orange, like hell, like a furnace, like steel.’ Set against the backdrop of the Sheffield Blitz, Operation Crucible is the story of four ordinary men in extraordinary times…

On the 12 December 1940 a single bomb reduced the Marples Hotel, which stood proudly in Fitzalan Square, from seven storeys to just 15 feet of rubble. Only one of the ten compartments in the hotel’s cellars withstood the blast. Within it, trapped, were four men.

This is their story, from beginning to end… Tickets available from Sheffield Theatres’ Box Office on 0114 249 6000 or online at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk
