The Crucible

By Arthur Miller

Salem, Massachusetts - 1692. Rigid piety huddles on the edge of the new world’s wilderness.

Its inhabitants believe unquestioningly in their own sanctity, but in Arthur Miller’s edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft—and then those accusations multiply to consume the entire village.

First produced in 1953, at a time when America was convulsed by a new epidemic of witchhunting, The Crucible brilliantly explores the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil...and speaks as clearly to us today as it did during McCarthy’s Red Scare.

The Crucible is a play that is not only relentlessly suspenseful and vastly moving, but one that compels us all to question our hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theater ever can. A not to be missed, Bag&Baggage style examination of one of the greatest plays in American history.
