The Crucible

Arthur Miller
LA Theatre Works
Directed by Martin Jenkins
In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In a searing portrait of a community engulfed by panic―with ruthless prosecutors, and neighbors eager to testify against neighbor―The Crucible famously mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria that held the United States in its grip in the 1950s.
