A classic of the American theatre, The Crucible is a fictionalized depiction of the infamous witch trials that occurred during 1692-1693 in Salem, Massachusetts. Drawing upon historical events involving the accusers, those who presided over the trials, and those who were accused, convicted, and perhaps executed, this play by Arthur Miller explores the cultural, political, and religious forces that came to bear on the events in an attempt to understand how truth can be murky, belief can be corrupt, and justice misused.
