The Crucible – A Little Theatre Production

This exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. The story tells “how small lies – children’s lies – build and build until a whole town is aroused and 19 men and women go to the gallows for being possessed of the Devil … They are good men and women, upright, hardworking, compassionate and Godfearing …

(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 the lie – and here, in this trial scene, is the big moment. It is a thrilling, bloodcurdling, terrifying scene, as it depicts the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused, imprisoned and condemned.
