The Crucible

First Stage
The Crucible

Inspired by the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s, THE CRUCIBLE takes us back to a fictionalized account of the Salem, Massachusetts witch trials. A tale of lies, revenge, and mass hysteria as the citizens of Salem turn against each as gossip becomes fact, lies become truth, and innocence becomes guilt. Performance runtime is approximately two hours, including an intermission. Suggested for families and young people ages 13+

Performed by our award-winning Young Company, these Performance Projects are actor-driven presentations using elemental production values. By stripping down to a nearly bare stage. the connection of actor to audience is enhanced, and the words of the play come alive in exciting ways.
