About the Show

“A searing portrait of a community engulfed by panic.”
-BBC Radio
The Puritan town of Salem, Massachusetts appears to be beset by evil acts of witchcraft. An accusation explosively turns the community upon itself; consuming the guilty and innocent alike. The Pulitzer Prize-winning Crucible is a gripping commentary on the consequences of religious intolerance and abuses of power.

Content Advisory Mature themes and stage violence.

The Crucible is approximately two hours in length, with a fifteen minute intermission.

The Crucible is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
