Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, The Crucible is a dramatization of the Salem Witch Trials that took place during 1692-1693. Miller wrote the play as an allegory to McCarthyism, when the U.S. government blacklisted accused communists. The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.
