The village of Salem is run wild with tales of witchcraft. Deep-seated jealousies, lust and greed are bubbling to the surface from the heat of each neighbor’s exaggerated accusations. Revenge has replaced reason; mere rumors are now damning evidence — and no one is safe. When a Salem farmer brings his young servant-girl to court after she maliciously causes his wife’s arrest for witchcraft, he suddenly finds himself in the throes of bigotry and deceit. Written in the 1950s when the insidious fear of communism gripped America, The Crucible is a devastating portrayal of the human cost of tyranny and vengeance.
