The Crucible

by Arthur Miller

Directed by Tasia Jones

March 5 – March 14, 2021 (DATE CHANGE- Originally Feb 26)

ONLINE PLAY

When teenage girls are discovered trying to conjure spirits, the 17th century town of Salem explodes with accusations of witchcraft. The vicious trials that follow expose a community paralyzed by fear, religious extremism and greed. "The Crucible was an act of desperation...when I began to think of writing about the hunt for Reds in America, I was motivated in some great part by the paralysis that had set it... Nobody but a fanatic, it seemed, could really say all that he believed." -Arthur Miller. Sadly, we live in a polarized world of fake news and cancel culture so the play is still achingly relevant today as it was in 50’s during the McCarthy years when peoples’ livelihoods were being canceled.
