by Arthur Miller
Written in the early 1950s, The Crucible takes place in Salem, Massachusetts during the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. This was a time when paranoia, hysteria, and deceit gripped the Puritan towns of New England with tragic consequences. Mr Miller captures these events in a gripping story that is now considered a modern classic of the theater. The play is historical fiction based on the court records of the famous trials with most characters, and all verdicts & executions remaining accurate to those documents.
