I found it profoundly incredible as to how all the actors could remember ALL those lines. Well done.

Great little venue (75 seats) and very powerful performance. I was entertained for the entire 3 hour play.

Good solid community theatre performance. I especially enjoyed the performance by the actor who played Joseph Proctor.

Description

A revolutionary work of theatre by one of the world’s greatest playwrights, The Crucible dramatizes the 17th-century Salem witch trials, and was written in 1953 as an angry allegory to the anti-Communist hysteria of the time. Miller himself was questioned by the House Un-American Activities Committee, found guilty of communist beliefs and convicted of “contempt of Congress” for refusing to identify others. The Crucible is a central work in the canon of American theater. Its themes continue to resonate in today’s political climate.
