Miller's Crucible at the Joan Salem, Massachusetts, 1692. The savage New World of the Americas.
Into a small puritanical community struggling to survive the harsh conditions of the early American frontier, a new threat arises: witchcraft.
A girl lies in a catatonic state under strange circumstances.
Pride, jealousy, ignorance and terror are allowed to flourish amid the hysteria, with shattering consequences.
Written amid the paranoia of the Cold War, Arthur Miller's classic of modern theatre is a searing indictment of mass hysteria.
Emu Heights Productions presents The Crucible this month at the Joan.
