Angry Accusations Fly in THE CRUCIBLE at The Barn Players
"The Crucible" by Arthur Miller is being directed by Barn Players veteran David Martin. Leading roles are being taken by Andy Penn, Jessica Franz, Lauren Hambleton, and Phil Howard. The ensemble includes: Camille Breckenridge, Richard Burt, Elise Campagna, Teddi Castillo, Victor Castillo, Charles Christesson, Un Joo Christopher, Emma Cook, Lauren Crane, Valerie Dykes, Maura Graham, Barbara Handy, Dan Heinz, David Innis, Sarah Jeter, Michael Juncker, Sean Leistico, Zoe London, and Scott Shaw. The show is stage managed by D.K. Evenson; assistant direction and set design are by Steven Ansel; lighting design is by Chuck Cline; costume design is by Jennifer Knecht; and properties are by Valerie Martin.
"We view this story as timeless," says director David Martin. "While the actual events took place in the late 1600's and the play was written with the shadow of 1950's McCarthyism over it, you don't have to look hard to find persecution, politically motivated accusations, and public character assassination in our world. Our hope is that this show serves as a reminder of the consequences of such actions, while also taking audiences on a voyeuristic ride through one of our country's most historic black marks."
