Sept 29-Oct 04: The Crucible

Primary tabs

Winner, 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. This gripping drama is a timeless tale of fear, greed, and power written by one of the greatest American playwrights. Widely regarded as Arthur Miller's response to the unseemly "House Un-American Activities Committee" hearings in the 1950s and based on historical people and events, THE CRUCIBLE is a searing portrait of the mass hysteria that led to the tragic witch-hunts and trials in 17th century Salem, Massachusetts.
