The Crucible by Arthur Miller at Summit High School
April 25, 2019 - April 28, 2019
Evening performances at 7pm on: April 25 – 27. Matinee performance at 2pm on: April 28. The Crucible by Arthur Miller. In every community torn by suspicion, the most dangerous threat may be the community itself.
In the insular, Puritan community of 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, a group of young girls are found dancing in the woods, and immediately fall ill. When no earthly cause can be determined, the citizens of Salem suspect that some more sinister force may be at hand. As long-held grudges turn to violent disputes, humiliating secrets are exposed and disseminated, and the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurry, the citizens’ dogged determination to root out evil becomes more dangerous than the evil itself. When the burden of proof is invisible and the crime too terrible to name, everyone becomes a suspect and no on is safe.
Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. This exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society.
