The Crucible (live theatrical play)
Date: Saturday, October 13, 8:00 pm
Location: Performances are held in the Academic Arts Theatre.
Arthur Miller’s searing timely American drama is about what can happen when truth is bent to political convenience. No one is safe as a reign of terror rips through 1692 Salem. Led by Abigail Williams, a group of girls who claim to have seen the Devil hurl out charges of witchcraft, sending those who won’t confess to the noose. When the accusing finger points to his wife, John Proctor is forced to confront his past and determine his future. Inspired by the McCarthy era, this classic comes to vivid new life in the NATIONAL PLAYER’s bare-knuckle staging.
Feel free to come in costume and be a “witness” to an American historic event that can trick us into the present or treat us into the future.
