The Crucible

About the play

This rich expansive play presents a vivid account of the Salem witch-hunts that took place in Massachusetts in 1692.

Miller has successfully discovered a voice that reflects the lives of these Seventeenth Century Puritan settlers. It is full of rich, poetic imagery and captures, in its Biblical overtones, both the simplicity of the ordinary villagers and the fervor of the religious zealots.
