Navigate Up
The Crucible
By Arthur Miller
Directed by Ben Barnes
Thompson Theatre
MAR. 5 - MAR. 22
​When a group of teenage girls is caught dancing naked in the woods outside of a tiny Puritan town in Massachusetts, an investigation into their adolescent mischief-making derails into madness and hysteria when accusations of witchcraft fly. As the Salem Witch Trials proceed, Miller’s classic drama winds fear, paranoia, lust, and greed into a real American tragedy. Written in 1953 under the shadow of McCarthyism, The Crucible cries out against zealotry, bigotry, and the willingness to turn on another for personal gain in a masterpiece that is a both a gripping historical play and a timely parable for our current society.
