Arthur Miller’s The Crucible is a powerful dramatic portrayal of mass hysteria, intolerance and vengeance. In Salem in the late 1600s, a group of young girls accuse others of witchcraft sparking an alarming series of events. The self-righteous leaders of the church respond with suspicion and put those accused on trial for their lives ultimately leaving a town in fear, and the man at the center of it all questioning his faith and morality. One of the greatest American plays of all time and winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, this heart-pounding drama is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society.
