THE CRUCIBLE to Play at Elverket Autumn 2019
Arthur Miller's classic play, The Crucible will run at Elverket Sept. 14 through Nov. 28, 2019
This exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie-and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.
"A powerful drama." -NY Times.
