Otterbein University Theatre & Dance Presents "The Crucible"

October 17, 2016
Otterbein University

Westerville, OH—Otterbein University Theatre & Dance presents The Crucible at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20; and 8 p.m. on Oct. 21-22 and Oct. 27-29 in the Campus Center Theatre, 100 W. Home St. Tickets cost $20. Call 614-823-1109 or visit www.otterbein.edu/drama.

The village of Salem is run wild with tales of witchcraft. Deep-seated jealousies, lust and greed are bubbling to the surface from the heat of each neighbor’s exaggerated accusations. Revenge has replaced reason; mere rumors are now damning evidence — and no one is safe. When a Salem farmer brings his young servant-girl to court after she maliciously causes his wife’s arrest for witchcraft, he suddenly finds himself in the throes of bigotry and deceit. Written in the 1950s when the insidious fear of communism gripped America, “The Crucible” is a devastating portrayal of the human cost of tyranny and vengeance.

Tickets are $20 each and can be reserved by calling the Otterbein University box office at (614) 823-1109 or purchased online at www.otterbein.edu/drama. The box office is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour prior to performances. The box office is located in Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St.
