The Crucible
by Texas State University

Oct. 30 - Nov. 04, 2018

Emily Abscher, Malik James, Jessica Healey (photo by Jessica Graham)Young girls, caught dancing in a heathen ritual, turn the blame onto others. Alliances between friends and family crumble in a frenzy of allegations. Those who won’t confess will be hanged. Based on the Salem witch trials, this play takes a look at what happens when the truth is twisted for personal and political convenience. 

The Tony Award-wining play The Crucible by Arthur Miller is a powerfully disturbing fictionalized account of the Salem witch trials that took place in Massachusetts in the 17th century. Rigid religious and moral views contribute to a community's mass hysteria when a young girl and her friends accuse innocent people who have slighted them of performing witchcraft.
