Presented for the first time at Hartford Stage, Arthur Millerís gripping drama of a community stirred into madness by superstition, paranoia and malice is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations. At first, the idea that Goodie Proctor is a witch is only an absurd rumor, but the accusations of mischievous girls gradually take possession of Salem, and good people of pious nature are condemning other good people to the gallows. Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play.
