The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller in 1953, was written as an allegorical attack on the US government’s ostracisation of communists under the guise of a partially fictionalised dramatisation of the Salem witch trials, which took place in 1692/3.
A small village in colonial Massachusetts is suddenly thrown into chaos following an accusation of witchcraft from the daughters. Persecution ravages the townsfolk and lives hang in the balance as the hysteria spirals out of control.
