The Crucible

By Arthur Miller

Directed by Mike Lussenden

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play of 1953, The Crucible reveals a cautionary tale for all times. Set in colonial Salem, Massachusetts amidst the chaos of the infamous witch trials, Arthur Millerís story was a direct reaction to the equally infamous McCarthy Red Scare. As this modern classic unfolds, a timeless parable about lust for power, the power of fear, and the abuses of unchecked authority becomes evident.
