Actor's Express to Present Bone-Chilling Production of THE CRUCIBLE

pixeltracker

Actor's Express stages Arthur Miller's Tony award-winning play The Crucible January 21 - February 19, 2017.

The New York Post called it "a heart-stopping, bone-chilling masterpiece" and the New York Times said it was "the freshest, scariest play in town."

AE Artistic Director Freddie Ashley will direct this visceral new production, saying of Miller's riveting masterpiece, "The Crucible is one of the great plays of the twentieth century. When Arthur Miller wrote it in response to McCarthyism in the 1950s, it cemented itself as a rallying cry for justice in the face of fearmongering paranoia. Not since its Broadway debut has it been more relevant than it is at this moment. Our production will reflect our diverse community today and will hopefully serve as an empowering catalyst for positive conversation and change."

Performances of The Crucible are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 2 PM. Tickets start at $28 and may be purchased online at actors-express.com or by calling 404-607-7469.

The witching hour is at hand in the tight-knit community of Salem. Personal vendettas collide with lust and superstition, fueling widespread hysteria. Do witches walk among us, or has revenge created a monster? As paranoia grips the tiny town, reason takes a back seat to fear.
