Proudly Presents Arthur Miller’s Classic Play

The Crucible

This American classic was actually driven by Miller’s desire to comment on the hysteria sweeping the USA in the 1960’s, known as McCarthyism, when the U.S. government prosecuted and/or blacklisted accused communists. Too hot and dangerous a topic to openly address, Miller made brilliant use of the similarities between current conditions and the Salem Witch Hunts of the 1690’s which claimed the lives of 20 townsfolk. If you are intrigued to know what happens when ignorance and fear mix, then this is the play for you!
