The Crucible

written by Arthur Miller
directed by Laura Kepley

Run time: 2:50 including intermission

Presented by

John P. Murphy Foundation

The village of Salem is run wild with tales of witchcraft. Deep-seated jealousies, lust and greed are bubbling to the surface from the heat of each neighbor’s exaggerated accusations. Revenge has replaced reason; mere rumors are now damning evidence — and no one is safe. Astoundingly relevant, Arthur Miller’s controversial American classic dares to put us all on trial.
