The Crucible


The Crucible

by Arthur Miller
Directed by Mathew Green

A modern adaptation of a classic American drama based on the 1692-93 Salem witch trials, The Crucible was written as a reflection on Arthur Miller’s own harrowing experience with McCarthyism in the 1950’s. The Communist “witch hunt” of that era parallels the fear, ignorance, and paranoia that prevailed in the witch trials of the 17th Century. The play shows that it is heroism in the face of injustice that brings hope and redemption.
