Master playwright Arthur Miller leads us through a web of deceit and betrayal in this partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during the winter of 1692. The story focuses upon John Proctor, his wife, Elizabeth, and Abigail Williams, the young servant-girl who maliciously embroils an entire town in a crucible of lies, accusations, and terror.
Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, THE CRUCIBLE offers an unflinching view of what can happen when justice and truth fall victim to the worst impulses of humanity, and how a society struggles to retain its morality in the face of manipulation, fear, and blind self-interest.
