Arthur Miller’s The Crucible revolves around a young farmer, John Proctor, his wife, Elizabeth, and a young servant girl, Abigail, who maliciously causes Elizabeth’s arrest for witchcraft. John brings Abigail to court to admit the lie – and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. John, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others. Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, this exciting drama, based on the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem, is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. The role of Elizabeth Proctor will be played by Managing Artistic Director Jenny Ballard.
