"Abigail Williams is a young woman at her breaking point. She was born a strong willed, passionate, powerhouse at the precise wrong moment in history- when every aspect of society was fortified in the favor of men, and assertiveness and sexuality were viewed as evil. She's lost everything, and when the only tenderness she knows is also taken from her, she snaps. I relate to her deeply. When I say that people look at me like, really?? And I say, "Yes, really." I'd certainly never hurt anyone the way she does- but then again, I've never been in a situation where my survival depends on blaming someone. But I say, if you've never loved someone SO much that you'd snap a chicken's neck and drink it's blood to edge out the competition, well then you've never really loved someone." Teal Jandrain

“… the raw terror in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible … makes the flesh creep.” -The New York Times
The year is 1692. The village of Salem is feverish with tales of witchcraft. Deep-seated jealousies, lust and greed are erupting in the form of deadly accusations. Revenge has replaced reason; mere rumors are now damning evidence — and no one is safe. As neighbor turns against neighbor, Salem descends into a cauldron of hysteria from which it can never return. Astoundingly relevant, Arthur Miller’s enduring masterpiece dares to put us all on trial. 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. Contains adult themes.
