The Crucible
By Arthur Miller

Directed by: Paul Mullins

February 22 - March 4, 2018

Recommended Ages: 12 and up (PG-13)

When the daughter of the local reverend falls into a mysterious coma, the town of Salem, Massachusetts finds itself plunged into a state of suspicion and fear. The young women accuse citizens in the town of witchcraft. The lies spread like wildfire until it is too late to admit the truth. Written in 1952 in the wake of Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee, Arthur Miller’s classic tale of persecution and fear remains poignant and relevant today. Whose voices are heard in society now and whose are silenced? How does fear used as a political tool? When do lies have more power than the truth?
