By Arthur Miller
April 27 - May 7
Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. Inspired by the events of the era of McCarthyism, playwright Arthur Miller explores the mass political and cultural hysteria created by the U.S. Government’s attempts to suppress Communism and the radical leftist activity in America.
Using the avenue of the Salem Witch Trials, Miller’s story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft.
“This exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. A powerful drama." —NY Times.
