Inhaltsangabe: A classic of the American Theatre - Arthur Miller's tense, ingeniously multi-layered drama of principle and paranoia.
The place is Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, an enclave of rigid piety huddled on the edge of a wilderness. Its inhabitants believe unquestioningly in their own sanctity. But in Arthur Miller's edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft and then when those accusations multiply to consume the entire village.
First produced in 1953, at a time when America was convulsed by a new epidemic of witch hunting, The Crucible brilliantly explores the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil. It is a play that is not only relentlessly suspenseful and vastly moving, but that compels listeners to gather their hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theater ever can.
A full-cast performance by The Repertory Theatre of Lincoln Center featuring Robert Foxworth, Pamela Payton-Wright, Stuart Pankin, and Jerome Dempsey and cast.
Arthur Miller was born in New York City in 1915. His first theatrical success occurred in 1947 with All My Sons, which earned him the Drama Critic's Circle Award. In 1949, Death of a Salesman was given the Pulitzer Prize and the Drama Critic's Circle Award. The Crucible won a Tony Award four years later. His other plays included A View from the Bridge, The Price, After the Fall, Incident at Vichy, The American Clock, Danger Memory, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, and Broken Glass.
Inhaltsangabe: FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. The play centers on the Salem witch trials of the late 17th century and the problem of guilt by association
