"The Crucible is widely regarded as one of the greatest American plays ever written," explains Livy Scanlon, artistic director of THT Rep and director of the staged reading. "That said, the play is laden with misogyny. We're going to see how the piece lands when all the roles - both male and female - are played by women."

The cast for this staged reading includes seasoned professionals alongside students from The Hanover Theatre Conservatory. Each reading will be followed by an optional audience dialogue. Tickets are available on a tiered model from $8 - $150 at Click Here.
