“The Crucible” takes place in the deeply religious community of Salem, headed by the local pastor, Reverend Parris, whose daughter Betty has fallen ill after having been caught dancing in the woods with a group of other young girls. Rumors of witchcraft spread through the community as paranoia and panic run rampant. “The Crucible” plays part cautionary tale, supernatural thriller, and frenzied mystery, as themes of manipulation and panic are unleashed. “Miller uses ‘The Crucible’ to fictionalize the way that unsubstantiated rumor and innuendo can ignite an uncontrolled firestorm of hatred and fear,” says John Bell, Head of the Division of Performing Arts.
