Did you have any superlatives in high school? Watch as the cast of John Proctor is the Villain shares which ones their characters would have! The production officially opens tomorrow at The Huntington.

At a rural high school in Georgia, a group of lively teens explore Arthur Miller's The Crucible while navigating young love, sex ed, and a few school scandals in John Proctor is the Villain. With a contemporary lens on the American classic, the young women begin to discover their power and agency, finding a way to hold both the classic text and their community to account – with a profound sense of rage, authenticity, and hope. Alternately touching and bitingly funny, this new comedy captures a generation in mid-transformation, running on pop music, optimism, and fury, writing their own coming of age story.
