    When everyone is a suspect, the most dangerous threat to the community may be the community itself.

    Accusations of witchcraft turn neighbor against neighbor in 17th century Salem, Massachusetts. The malicious trials that follow reflect the mob psychology of a community paralyzed by terror, in which piety and righteousness are masks for malevolent greed and self-interest.

    The Crucible was originally written as an allegory for 1950s McCarthyism and the House Committee on Un-American Activities, which accused thousands of Americans of being communists or communist sympathizers. Arthur Miller’s Tony Award-winning masterpiece continues to resonate in our contemporary society.

    The running time for The Crucible is approximately two and a half hours and includes one intermission. The Crucible contains adult themes that may not be suitable for children under the age of 12.
