The Crucible, widely regarded as one of the greatest American plays of all time, is set in the scorching context of the 17th-century Salem witch trials. The story includes timeless topics and a community dealing with fear, suspicion, revenge, intolerance, and the power of hysteria. The Crucible stands as a timely reminder to not always take everything at face value – centering around accusations of witchcraft, consuming Salem as the town waited, stunned, to find out who would be accused next.
Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play.
