The Crucible, set during the Salem witch trials in Massachusetts, grapples with the issues of systemic hypocrisy, false accusation, and the sublimation of minorities within society.

This fiery production promises to thrill and give audiences pause “to consider the impact our actions have on the lives of others.”
