The Crucible
Presented by: Conservatory Theater Company
The hysteria and intolerance of the Salem Witch Trials of the 1690s provide the setting for this Arthur Miller classic. When a mysterious illness affects a teenage girl, the family looks for someone or something to blame. Suggestions of witchcraft made by the jealous, conniving Abigail Williams throws this town into a frenzy of accusations. A rich allegory of the McCarthy era of the 1940s and 50s, The Crucible won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953.
