Widely considered one of the greatest American plays ever written, The Crucible dramatizes the Salem, MA witch trials of the late 1600s. Miller originally wrote the piece in response to the McCarthy-era communist "witch hunt" that gripped the United States in the 1950s. Livy Scanlon and her creative team will examine how the play's themes of misogyny and religious extremism resonate in today's world, especially when women play both the male and female characters. As part of this examination, they will consider the role white women play in society as both victims and victimizers. Audiences are invited to stay for post-show dialogues with members of the community and creative team. Tiered tickets from $8-$150. Click here to learn more about our tiered ticket pricing.
