*THE CRUCIBLE is historical drama set against the backdrop of the Salem Witch trials.  As such, it contains some intense and possibly disturbing themes and situations.  Parents are advised to use discretion in considering whether to attend with their children, especially those under 13.

THE CRUCIBLE by Arthur Miller is a historical drama highlighting real events and people from America's early history in Salem, Massachusetts. The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife and a young servant girl who maliciously causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit her lie, and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. Instead of saving his wife, the farmer suddenly finds himself accused of witchcraft along with a host of others in the community. This powerful cautionary tale reminds us all of the dangers of prejudice and rushing to judgement.
