The Crucible

The Crucible graphic
By Arthur Miller
Directed by Melissa Lusher

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. . A Salem farmer finds himself in the throes of bigotry and deceit after his former servant-girl maliciously causes his wife’s arrest for witchcraft and is summoned to court. 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.
