Spring, 1692. In the black of night, a Salem village reverend discovers a group of teenage girls dancing devilishly around a fire in the woods. When his daughter exhibits strange catatonic symptoms the following morning, the townsfolk are frenzied with rumors of witchcraft. Deep-seated jealousy, deadly accusations, and seething resentments pit neighbor against neighbor as a deeply religious community is thrown into turmoil. A timeless parable about morality, silence and the devastating consequences when fear takes root in a community. The Crucible is Arthur Miller’s thinly veiled condemnation of the Communist “witch hunt” of his time. The play won the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play and is a landmark work in the canon of American drama.
